Director Rob Cohen, best known for movies like "The Skulls," "The Fast and the Furious," and "xXx," has signed on to direct a prison thriller called "Scared Straight" for New Line.

From The Hollywood Reporter: "Rob Cohen has signed on to helm "Scared Straight," a prison thriller for New Line Cinema … "Straight" centers on a governor’s teenage son who is sent to prison as part of Scared Straight, a crime-prevention program that imprisons delinquent teens for a short period in the hopes of deterring them from a life of crime. While the teenager is there, a riot breaks out and the prisoners take him hostage. He teams with other street kids and a con to stop the riot. "After the success of ‘Prison Break,’ there is revival of interest in the genre," Cohen said in an interview. "It’s going to be a genre movie with depth, and the depth will come from the character. It’s the fight for the soul of this young kid who is on the verge."


Because we all know how Rob Cohen’s flicks are famous for their "depth of character."
