de Montreuil Set To Drive “Lowriders”

Peruvian filmmaker Ricardo de Montreuil (“Mancora”) has signed on to direct the coming-of-age drama “Lowriders” for Universal Pictures and Imagine Entertainment says The Hollywood Reporter.

The story follows a kid from Pacoima with a dead-end job and dreams of building the perfect lowrider (a car with a low-riding suspension system).

When he finds fortune and fame, the local bad ass wants a piece of him, and he questions his pursuit of the American dream.

Journalist Cheo Hodari Coker (“Notorious”) penned the script based on an idea by Producer Brian Grazer.
