Following on from the Oscar-winning Green Book, director Peter Farrelly appears to have found his next project, with Variety reporting that he is set to helm an adaptation of the acclaimed book The Greatest Beer Run Ever: A True Story of Friendship Stronger Than War by Joanna Molloy and John ‘Chickie’ Donohue.
The Greatest Beer Run Ever is based upon the true story of Donohue, who in 1967 set out to track down and share a few beers with his childhood buddies. However, his pals were serving in the United States Army, and on active duty in Vietnam at the time.
Farrelly is set to co-write the script with Brian Currie and Pete Jones, while David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, Don Granger and Andrew Muscato will produce on behalf of Skydance Productions.
Last year’s Green Book proved to be a huge success for Farrelly, with the film grossing $315 million worldwide, and receiving five Oscar nominations with three wins for Best Picture, Best Screenplay and best Supporting Actor (Mahershala Ali).
