Director Craig Brewer (Hustle & Flow) is lining up his next project. Brewer last helmed the surprisingly entertaining 2011 remake of Footloose, and now Deadline reports that he’s set to write and direct the drama Gangster Princess of Beverly Hills. The pic is based on a Rolling Stone article by Sabrina Rubin Erdley about Lisette Lee, a drug mule who portrayed herself to be an heiress to the Samsung fortune as well as an actress, singer, and model. Lee was caught trafficking 500 pounds of pot into Ohio and was sentenced to six years in prison. Brewer will pen the script and direct for Paramount, with Erwin Stoff set to produce.
The filmmaker had planned on helming Tarzan for Warner Bros. before Harry Potter director David Yates stepped in and took the gig instead. In addition to Gangster Princess of Beverly Hills, Brewer is also set to direct the Fox pilot Boomerang, starring Felicity Huffman and Anthony LaPaglia.
