Producers George Clooney and Grant Heslov are developing an adaptation of Joshuah Bearman’s upcoming article “Coronado High”.
Sony Pictures is in talks to acquire the project which would be a potential directing vehicle for Clooney.
The story involves a group of teenagers who are used to smuggle drugs in Coronado, an affluent resort city near San Diego.
Clooney and Heslov will produce with David Klawans. Clooney and Heslov previously produced a film based on another Bearman article – that film was Best Picture Oscar winner “Argo”.
