Someone wants to bring stuntman glory to the big screen. No, I’m not talking about a sequel to Hot Rod, though I would definitely pay to watch Andy Samberg fall down a hill for an even longer amount of time.

Director Ric Roman Waugh will helm a biopic of the legendary Evel Knievel for Exclusive Media Group. The film will be based on the biography The High-Flying Life of Evel Knievel by Leigh Montville. As an accomplished stuntman himself, Waugh seems like a solid choice for the project. But will he direct the movie… on fire? Well, judging by this quote, I can tell Waugh is passionate about the project:

“This is my Walk the Line. Instead of concerts and songs, you’re doing a daredevil guy. But it’s less about the stunts and more about an exploration of a man who let nothing stand in the way of his quest for fame and glory — including his own mortality.”

Let’s just hope Waugh doesn’t end up in a coma trying to make this thing. Or for that matter, the actor playing Knievel, who Waugh would like to be either Tom HardyChris Hemsworth or Joel Edgerton. (Hollywood Reporter)

There are times when you’re driving your car and you realize: “I need more secret compartments for movie weapons.” Well, sorry to tell you this, but you missed your chance to own the customized truck Sylvester Stallone drives in The Expendables, which sold at an Arizona auction for $134,000. The modified 1955 truck features a Ford 347cid Edelbrock engine, race seats, and “hidden compartments to hold movie weapons.” Just to hold? For $134K, I think it would have been nice if they at least threw in a few glocks, an M79 and a lightsaber.

Also up for auction were cars driven by Evel Knievel, Alice Cooper and Elvis. The theme of the auction must have been “Big In The 70s.” No word yet whether the Mystery Machine was on the block. (TMZ)

Here’s a bigger picture. So sleeky…
