Based on the book by Joanna Molloy and John “Chickie” Donohue, The Greatest Beer Run Ever: A True Story of Friendship Stronger Than War, the movie tells true story of Donohue, who left New York in 1967 for Vietnam to track down and share a few beers with his childhood friends, who were serving in the Army.
Brian Currie, who co-wrote Green Book, and Pete Jones (Hall Pass) will co-write the script with Farrelly.
David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, Don Granger and Andrew Muscato will serve as producers. The project is being overseen at Skydance by Granger, Goldberg and Aimee Rivera.
Farrelly is repped by Lichter Grossman and Anonymous Content; Currie is repped by Verve. Donahue and Molloy are repped by attorney Rob Szymanski.
