Fox has picked up the action-comedy “Little White Corvette” with Dylan O’Brien attached to star and Iain Morris in talks to direct.
Graham King of GK Films is producing. King has been developing the comedy since 2012, when Emma Stone was attached with Michael Diliberti directing from his own script.
The story centers around a down-and-out brother and sister who travel to Miami to try to sell a duffel bag of cocaine their dead father left in the trunk of a 1977 Corvette Stingray. The role of the sister has not yet been cast.
Emma Watts and Jason Young are overseeing “Little White Corvette” for Fox.
O’Brien has starred in the first two “Maze Runner” movies for Fox and stars in MTV’s “Teen Wolf.” He has wrapped on Lionsgate’s “Deepwater Horizon.”
Morris created the British sitcom “The Inbetweeners” with his writing partner Damon Beesley.
