Craig Brewer Boards Mother Trucker


Hustle & Flow writer/director Craig Brewer has signed a development deal with New Regency to write and direct Mother Trucker, based on a Maxim article written by Steven Russell.

Peter Jaysen of Moving Pictures AMG and Maxim is producing. Writer Gary Scott Thompson (“Knight Rider”) is executive producing.

Pegged as an updated take on Smokey and the Bandit, “Trucker” is an action comedy about a man who escapes from jail, steels an 18-wheeler and heads across the South to see his dying mother with police on his trail.
