Emile Hirsch will star in "The Motel Life" for Polsky Films reports Variety.
Based on the novel by Willy Vlautin, the story centers on two brothers who flee their Reno motel room after getting involved in a fatal hit-and-run accident. Hirsch will play one of the brothers.
Alan and Gabriel Polsky ("Bad Lieutenant: Port of New Orleans") will produce. While no director or screenwriter has yet been set, the Polsky duo may take on those duties as well.
Shooting hopes to kick off this year.
