Brewer to develop 'Mother Trucker'

By
Craig Brewer has signed a deal to write and direct forthcoming film Mother Trucker.

The Hustle & Flow writer-director will develop the project, based on a Maxim article, for New Regency.

The Steven Russell-penned action comedy will follow a man who escapes from jail, steals a truck and drives across the US to see his dying mother while being trailed by police.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the movie will feel like an updated version of Smokey And The Bandit.

Maxim and Peter Jaysen of Moving Pictures AMG will produce, while Las Vegas's Gary Scott Thompson will executive produce.

No production dates or casting announcements have been made yet.
