Limp Bizkit frontman turned film director Fred Durst has been given the keys to the action/black comedy Pawn Shop Chronicles.  Written by Adam Minarovich, the script is said to be in the vein of Pulp Fiction with 24 Frames describing it as such: “in a nutshell, a missing wedding ring leads to a wild-goose chase involving meth addicts, skinheads and an Elvis impersonator.”  Meth addicts, skinheads, and an Elvis impersonator?  With a trio like that, honestly, who’s not going to pay to see this film?

Pawn Shop Chronicles is being financed and produced by Jordan Schur, the CEO and co-chairman of the film production company Mimran Schur.  Schur and Durst go way back as the latter signed the former to a record deal on his label Flip Records.  As such, if you’ve ever grown weary of hearing the term “nookie” (a slim chance, but nevertheless), you now know where the blame truly lies.  As for Durst’s film career, he previously helmed 2007’s The Education of Charlie Banks starring Jesse Eisenberg (which played 2007’s Tribeca Film Festival) and 2008’s The Longshots starring Ice Cube (which plays on repeat on my home DVD player).  Pawn Shop Chronicles is schedule to begin production in early 2011.
