Jason Priestley Is A “Freerider”

Jason Priestley (“Beverly Hills 90210”) will develop the drug-smuggling story “Death of a Freerider” for Nomadic Pictures says Variety.

The story is based on a Rolling Stone article by Jesse Hyde about Sam Brown, a 22-year-old Canadian mountain biker who took his quest for adventure into the multi-million dollar business of cross-border drug smuggling, which ultimately lead to his death.

Chad Oakes and Mike Frislev will produce. Filming kicks off late 2010.
