Singleton to Drive Paramount's "Convoy"

by | December 8, 2005 | Comments

The Hollywood Reporter brings news of director John Singleton‘s next project, an auto-intensive action thriller called “Convoy.”

“John Singleton is in negotiations to direct “Convoy” for Paramount Pictures. The action-adventure film would reteam Singleton and producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura, who collaborated on the sleeper summer hit “Four Brothers,” which grossed nearly $75 million for Paramount. Di Bonaventura is producing “Convoy” through his Paramount-based di Bonaventura Pictures. Penned by Art Marcum and Matt Holloway, the story revolves around a group of U.S. truck drivers who make a one-year commitment to drive goods for U.S. contractors through the Afghan war zone because of financial hardships back home.”

John Singleton also “Boyz n the Hood,” “Poetic Justice,” “Higher Learning,” “Rosewood,” “Shaft,” “Baby Boy,” and “2 Fast 2 Furious.”

This project has no relation to the 1978 Sam Peckinpah / Kris Kristofferson truck flick of the same name, but I dig the poster anyway
