Actor/comedian T.J. Miller is on the rise, setting up an action comedy project at DreamWorks. Miller will script the pitch for EX CRIMINALS with cousin M. Miller Davis, with the intent for Miller to star.
The Silicon Valley star will lead the action/comedy, which follows a dysfunctional couple whose streak of bank robbing comes to a halt when they break up the night before their biggest heist ever.
The project marks the first sale for Davis, who previously worked as a PA on Comedy Central’s Tosh.O and as a researcher on Drunk History.
Miller has appeared in a number of films, with his next being Fox’s R-rated superhero pic Deadpool, opposite Ryan Reynolds. Miller is also known for his roles in the animated Big Hero 6 and How to Train Your Dragon series.
