Cher and Knoxville To “Drop-Out”

Cher and Johnny Knoxville are attached to star in the slacker comedy “The Drop-Out” says The Hollywood Reporter.

The story follows a 35-year-old career college student (Knoxville) who is finally kicked out of his parents house. Desperate, he decides to get in good with the 62-year-old woman next door (Cher), so he can keep his food, couch and TV regimen intact.

In the mix is the woman’s ne’er-do-well son, who is looking for a father figure, even if it’s a guy his own age. That role is still being cast.

Ricky Blitt (“The Ringer”) penned and will direct the project which John Jacobs is producing.
