Dylan O'Brien to star in new action comedy

Writer: Florey DM


Dylan O'Brien as Thomas, the lead of the "Maze Runner" franchise.

18 Dec – This time actor Dylan O'Brien won't be running around on foot, he'll be driving around in a "Little White Corvette".

Possibly – since that will be the actor's upcoming movie. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the 24-year-old is set to star in the brother-sister action comedy written by Michael Diliberti ("30 Minutes or Less").

O'Brien will play the nerdy young brother, though the wild older sister role has yet to be cast. The story follows the siblings who try to sell the stash of cocaine they found in their late father's 1977 Corvette Stingray. Unfortunately for them, they end up being chased by the police as well as a mysterious man driving a Dodge.

The movie was initially planned to be directed by Diliberti himself with Emma Stone ("Birdman") starring. But the plan was scraped and now English writer Iain Morris ("The Inbetweeners") is in discussion to helm the project.

O'Brien is well-known for his leading role as Thomas in "The Maze Runner" franchise, apart from starring as Stiles Stilinski in MTV's "Teen Wolf".

He is set to be seen next alongside the likes of Mark Walhberg, Kurt Russel, John Malkovich and Gina Rodriguez in 2016 movie, "Deepwater Horizon".
