Knoxville, Cher to Star in The Drop-Out


Johnny Knoxville (“Jackass”) and Cher are attached to star in The Drop-Out, a comedy written by Ricky Blitt, who will also direct.

The Hollywood Reporter says the project tracks the fortunes of a 35-year-old career college student (Knoxville) who is finally kicked out of his parents house. Desperate, he decides to get in good with the 62-year-old woman next door (Cher), so he can keep his food, couch and TV regimen intact. In the mix is the woman’s ne’er-do-well son, who is looking for a father figure, even if it’s a guy his own age.

The filmmakers are actively casting the son role, adds the trade.

Blitt wrote the 2005 comedy The Ringer, which also starred Knoxville.
