Pedro Correa Joins ‘S—heads’ With Tracy Morgan, Luke Wilson (EXCLUSIVE)

Pedro Correa has been signed for the lead role in the dark comedy “The S—heads” opposite Tracy Morgan and Luke Wilson, Variety has learned exclusively.

Imperative Entertainment acquired the rights to project in March in a competitive bidding auction with Macon Blair attached to direct from his own script. Blair won the U.S. dramatic Grand Jury Prize win at Sundance in January for his directorial debut “I Don’t Feel At Home In This World Anymore.”

The film, which will be produced and financed by Imperative, will also be co-produced byRough House Productions. Alex Orr and Rough House’s Brandon James will produce alongside Imperative’s Jillian Apfelbaum. Imperative’s Dan Friedkin and Bradley Thomas will executive produce along with Rough House’s Danny McBride, Jody Hill and David Gordon Green, Orr’s Fake Wood Wallpaper, and Jeremy Saulnier and Blair’s Bonneville Films.

Production is expected to start in September. The road movie follows a pair of unqualified bozos who have been hired to transport a troubled teenage millionaire — portrayed by Correa — to rehab.

Morgan was most recently seen in New Line’s “Fist Fight” opposite Ice Cube and Charlie Day. Wilson appeared in Showtime drama “Roadies” and will be seen next opposite Ben Stiller in the comedy “Brad’s Status.”

Correa’s previous credits include ABC’s “The Middle” and indies “The Wrong Crush” and “#Squadgoals.” He is repped by Luber Roklin Entertainment and Amstel, Eisenstadt, Frazier & Hinojosa.
