Apple Studios is in talks to finance the film 'The Greatest Beer Run Ever' with the Director of the Oscar winning film 'The Green Book'
Director Peter Farrelly finally is ready to follow his Best Picture Oscar winner Green Book. Apple Studios is in talks to finance The Greatest Beer Run Ever, with Zac Efron and Russell Crowe in talks to star. Since that victorious Oscar Night, Farrelly has had his sights set on this film, which he developed with Skydance.
Beer Run tells Donohue’s story of leaving New York in 1967 to bring beer to his childhood buddies in the Army — while they are fighting in Vietnam. Donohue took a good idea to the extreme, hitching a ride on a Merchant Marine ship, then carrying the beer through the jungle as he tried to track down his three friends. Dressed in shorts and Hawaiian shirts, he was mistaken for CIA, which made his effort a bit easier. Finally, when he completed his beer run, the Tet Offensive happened. Efron will play Donohue.
The hope is to start production in August, probably in New Zealand or Australia. For more on this, read the full Deadline report.
The Hollywood Reporter added that "Bill Murray is also eyeing a role in the movie, but sources note that his deal is nowhere near to being closed.
