Pretty Little Liars star Sasha Pieterse is back in action in a trailer for Netflix film Coin Heist, based on YA novel by Author Elisa Ludwig and Adaptive Studios.
The YA novel Coin Heist has an interesting beginning. Hyped by the Booktube community on Youtube, the novel evolved from an undeveloped 1998 script called The Hole with the Mint by William Osborne (Twins, The Scorpion Kings). Recognising the potential of the original story, the media company Adaptive Studios adapted the script into a YA novel loosely based on the original concept. Author Elisa Ludwig was then hired to bring the concept to life. Now the novel is being turned into a film.
Starring Sasha Pieterse (Pretty Little Liars), Alex Saxon (Finding Carter, The Fosters), Alexis G. Zall (Ouija: Origin of Evil), and Jay Walker (Sleight), Coin Heist follows four unlikely allies, the slacker, the athlete, and the perfect student. When a crisis threatens to destroy their Philadephia prep school, the students try to set things right by raising $10 million, but to do so they must first break into the U.S. Mint.
Directed by Emily Hagins, Coin Heist premieres on Netflix January 6.
