Marquette, Gigandet Smoke Cannabis

Chris Marquette (“Race to Witch Mountain”), Cam Gigandet (“Never Back Down”) and Aaron Yoo (“21”) are teaming for the true story adaptation “Kid Cannabis” says The Hollywood Reporter.

Marquette plays the title character and Gigandet is his best friend, two Idaho suburbanites who built a multimillion-dollar marijuana ring. The feds eventually are alerted to the scheme, and the two realize they might be in over their heads.

John Stockwell (“Blue Crush,” “Turistas”) penned the script and will direct. A July 14th start date in Vancouver is being targeted.
