Yes - Hollywood even adapts magazine articles into feature films. Myriad Pictures is doing just that with The Electric Slide, a film that will be based off the Gear magazine article The Yankee Bandit: The Life and Times of Eddie Dodson, World's Great Bank Robber.
The studio is hoping that Ewan McGregor and Carey Mulligan will star.

Tristan Patterson will be making his directing debut off a script he wrote.
In the 1980s, Dodson (McGregor) robbed more than 72 banks in the Los Angeles area before the FBI finally caught up to him.
Ewan McGregor is currently prepping to begin filming Roman Polanski's The Ghost in Berlin and can next be seen as a title character in Angels & Demons.
Mulligan can next be seen in Michael Mann's Public Enemies.
