Warner Bros. has picked up the spec script Trans Am by Matt Johnson, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The Southern-fried buddy action script centers on a disgraced sheriff's deputy and a repentant getaway driver who must elude a federal manhunt when they join forces to bring an escaped bank robber to justice. The action unfolds along the Mississippi River in the vein of a Deep South-set 48 Hours.

No production date has been set.
