In Two Years Every Shitty Movie Will Be About Uber

Yesterday, The Hollywood Reporter broke the news that Universal and Fox both paid a shitload of money to get the wheels turning on two different Uber-themed movies.

On April 14, Universal reportedly coughed up seven figures for an untitled comedy starring Will Ferrell as “an Uber driver stuck with a deranged escaped-convict passenger.” The morning after, Fox apparently paid six figures for the script of a movie titled Stuber, which apparently “takes place over one harrowing night in the life of an Uber driver who picks up a grizzled cop working the most dangerous case of his career.”

Both of them sound predictably bad, and it’s unclear whether anyone besides Uber CEO Travis Kalanick actually wants to see a movie about the company.
