Monster Problems: Michael Matthews directing, Dylan O’Brien in talks to star

According to Deadline, Paramount Players and Shawn Levy’s 21 Laps has tapped Michael Matthews to direct Monster Problems with Dylan O’Brien in talks to star.

Details are few on the project’s plot, but it is said to center around a road trip and is likened to both Mad Max and Zombieland with John Hughes overtones.

The spec script arrives from Brian Duffield who also wrote Jane Got a Gun. Levy jumped onboard the property way back in 2012, and the project has since lingered in development Hell before today’s news.

Matthews directed the South African Western thriller Five Fingers for Marseilles about the young ‘Five Fingers’ who fought for the rural town of Marseilles, against brutal police oppression twenty years ago. The film was a relative hit with critics and earned a 74% on Rotten Tomatoes based on 31 critical reviews.

Dylan O’Brien has attempted to make the jump from TVs Teen Wolf to the big screen with roles in The Maze Runner series, and the Peter Berg thriller Deepwater Horizon. He starred in American Assassin alongside Michael Keaton, which was a box office and critical disappointment. He is currently filming The Education of Fredrick Fitzell, and is scheduled to film The Bayou and Marceau.
