According to The Hollywood Reporter, John Singleton is in negotiations to direct Convoy for Paramount Pictures. The action-adventure film would reteam Singleton and producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura, who collaborated on the sleeper summer hit Four Brothers, which grossed nearly $75 million for Paramount. Di Bonaventura is producing Convoy through his Paramount-based di Bonaventura Pictures.

Penned by Art Marcum and Matt Holloway, the story revolves around a group of U.S. truck drivers who make a one-year commitment to drive goods for U.S. contractors through the Afghan war zone because of financial hardships back home.
