Titled American Sole the flick will follow the day to day of two college students that are over their heads in debt. To get their funds up they explore the aftermarket sneaker world. Unfortunately the money gets low very quickly and they resort to partnering up with some shady characters. “We’re always looking for ways to tap into the zeitgeist, and anyone who’s paying attention to popular culture around the world knows that this particular trend authentically marries the worlds of fashion, music, sports and business and this project has garnered genuine interest in all of those key verticals,” said STXfilms chairman Adam Fogelson. “We believe we have assembled a dream team of filmmakers, and with the cast led by Pete, we couldn’t ask for a more exciting fit for STXfilms.”

There is no current release date for American Sole.
