Marijuana comedy is the new vampires, so move over, zombies. Yet another weed flick is making its way to theaters, this one titled We’re the Millers, focusing on that tried-and-true formula of the criminal making good, walking away forever after one big score.
Dodgeball director Rawson Thurber is is attached to direct the project, which contemplates a 30 year-old weed dealer walking away from the game forever after smuggling 1,400 pounds of dope up from Mexico through a ruse involving a fake family. Doesn’t he know you can just buy it at stores now?
Since 2004’s Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story, Thurber’s biggest project has been the little recognized The Mysteries of Pittsburgh. Huh. I have no impression of this guy one way or the other, so I will reserve judgment about this project until we get some casting news.
