Hustle & Flow director Craig Brewer will stay with Paramount for his next project, Maggie Lynn, a country-music drama that he'll write and direct, reports Variety.

Brewer just finished the drama Black Snake Moan, starring Samuel L. Jackson, Christina Ricci and Justin Timberlake. That film will be distributed through Paramount Vantage.

Maggie Lynn follows a woman who gets her heart broken and achieves a sense of self-worth by returning home to Tennessee, where she teams with her older brother to play country music in honkytonks.

Brewer hopes to be in production before the year is out.
