According to The Hollywood Reporter, Steve Buscemi is in final negotiations to star in We're the Millers, a comedy Peter Cattaneo is directing for New Line Cinema.

The story centers on a drug dealer (Buscemi) who realizes on his birthday that he wants out of the business. He decides to do one more job, which forces him to travel to Mexico and create a make-believe family, the Millers, in order to bring 1,400 pounds of marijuana into the U.S. Will Arnett was originally slated to star in the pic but vacated the slot because of scheduling reasons.

The script was written by Steve Faber and Bob Fisher, who penned Wedding Crashers for the studio, and is being produced by Vincent Newman and Tucker Tooley.
