Columbia Picks Up 'Last Exorcism' Writers' 'Wheels'
Road movie reteams Andrew Gurland and Huck Botko with Will Ferrell and Adam McKay's Gary Sanchez Productions and Principato/Young.
Columbia has picked up Wheels, a high school road movie from Andrew Gurland and Huck Botko, the duo who wrote the found footage hit The Last Exorcism.
Wheels reteams Gurland and Botko with Will Ferrell and Adam McKay's Gary Sanchez Productions and Principato/Young, who produced the duo's comedy The Virginity Hit for Columbia.
Gurland and Botko have made names for themselves in the low-budget, documentary-styled movie (Gurland also co-directed Frat House, a documentary that won the 1998 Sundance Film Festival grand jury prize) and according to Columbia, Wheels will follow that path.
In addition to grossing $41 million domestically on a $1.8 million budget, Last Exorcism surprised many last week when it garnered two Indie Spirit Awards in the performance categories.
The duo are repped by WME and Principato/Young.
