DreamWorks has set 24 co-executive producer and director Jon Cassar to helm Motorcade, and is eyeing Ryan Reynolds to play the lead.

According to Variety, the film centers on a disgraced Secret Service agent who happens to be in the wrong place at the right time when the U.S. president is kidnapped in New York.

Billy Ray continues to work on a script that was originated by Hans Bauer and Craig Mitchell.

The studio is aiming to start production by late summer or early fall 2010.
