Hot Dog Vendor: According to Variety, Paramount Pictures has moved forward on Johnny Knoxville's Hot Dog Vendor project by signing Sheldon Turner, one of Hollywood's most sought-after writers, to pen the script.

The comedy will center initially on the rivalry between a pair of hot dog vendors in downtown Los Angeles, with Knoxville portraying an ex-con forced into the business by his parole officer. The duo eventually ally to take on a common enemy, the equivalent of the New York Yankees of the hot dog vending world.

Stay tuned for more on this project...
