Jason Priestley is moving out of 90210 -- sorry, couldn't help it -- and heading for the bigscreen. The actor slash director slash producer is developing Death of a Freerider, a drug-smuggling story that, as you might have guessed, ends with the death of the title character.

Jason Priestley Working on Death of a Freerider


Priestley's optioned the feature rights to Death of a Freerider, penned by Jesse Hyde for Rolling Stone about Sam Brown, a 22-year-old Canadian mountain biker who took his quest for adventure into the multi-million dollar business of cross-border drug smuggling, which ultimately lead to his death.

There is no real rush on the project, as Priestley is hoping to get the project into production by the end of next year. If you haven't been keeping up with the actor, you might assume that this will serve as his grand return to Hollywood. Not so, and not that you care, but Priestley's upcoming projects include the BBC miniseries Day of the Triffids and Meet Phil Fitz. He's also kept himself busy by directing episodes of Secret Life of the American Teenager, the new 90210 and The Lake.
