Josh Duhamel has spent the last few years flitting around the edge of being a proper movie star, without really making it – after all, most people forget he was even in the Transformers movies, which have been his biggest successes.
Now Deadline reports he’s taking the lead in a new movie he’ll hope will raise his film star status. He’ll appear alongside Dan Fogler in Scenic Route, about two former college buddies who go on a road trip and become stranded in the desert. As they begin to realise they might never be rescued, they begin to have heated fights, both emotionally and physically.
They may sound pretty miserable, but apparently it a comedy, written by The Beaver’s Kyle Killen. There’s no news on when it might shoot.
