Coker Drives Hot Cars For “Lowriders”

The “Fast and the Furious” franchise is about to get a younger, more urban rival albeit from the same studio.

Cheo Hodari Coker (“Notorious”) is penning the drama “Lowriders” for Universal Pictures and Imagine Entertainment says The Hollywood Reporter.

Producer Brian Grazer came up with the idea of doing a film exploring the low-riding car culture – cars from the 50’s & 60’s with height-adjustable suspension that ‘hugs’ the road – which has set up home in California amongst primarily latino and black teenagers.

Los Angeles-based tattoo and graffiti artist Mark Machado serves as executive producer.
