Kumail Nanjiani will join Dave Bautista, star of the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise, in action comedy Stuber.
Kumail Nanjiani — who stars as Dinesh Chugtai on HBO’s Silicon Valley and was recently nominated for an Academy Award along with his wife Emily V. Gordon for the Best Original Screenplay for The Big Sick — is in top demand in Hollywood these days.
Nanjinai has now signed his first lead in a studio comedy! Nanjiani will join Dave Bautista, star of the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise, in 20th Century Fox’s action comedy Stuber, the Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.
Michael Dowse (director of Goon, The F Word) will direct from a script by Tripper Clancy, and the film is being produced by Spider-Man: Homecoming screenwriters Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley.
Nanjiani will play a mild-mannered Uber driver named Stu who picks up a grizzled cop (Bautista) and gets sucked into his hunt for a vicious killer. The movie will follow Nanjiani and Bautista's chase while the Uber driver tries to keep his five-star rating intact.
In The Big Sick, Nanjiani played a dramatized version of himself, who was also an Uber driver.
No release date for Stuber has yet been announced.
