Vanessa Hudgens to Star in and Executive Produce Female Trucker Movie BIG RIG

Vanessa Hudgens Picture

Vanessa Hudgens ("High School Musical", "Spring Breakers") is set to star in and executive produce the upcoming drama "Big Rig" directed by Martha Stephens ("To the Stars") from a script by Ryan Binaco ("To Leslie"). Currently in pre-production, the film shoots later this year.

Hudgens stars as Bertie, a young mother who finds her freedom and herself on the open road as a big rig truck driver. Living in a small town in Tennessee, Bertie is strapped for cash and shouldering most of the responsibility as she and her husband Sonny try to make ends meet for their three unruly young kids. Bertie decides to take matters into her own hands by secretly learning how to drive 18-wheelers and soon hits the open road, tearing across the United States. Bertie is thrilled by her newfound sense of adventure and purpose, and her family life is also improving. But as Bertie makes new friends and racks up the miles, she finds her home life harder to return to, and her tried-and-true relationship with Sonny starts to break down. As these two sides of her life compete for her attention, Bertie must decide where her heart really lies.

Claude Dal Farra and Brian Keady of BCDF Pictures are producing with Kelsey Law. Mister Smith Entertainment is launching global sales on the film at the upcoming Cannes Market. Here's what Dal Farra had to say about the project:
"We are delighted to be working with Martha and Vanessa on this upbeat and powerful story of freedom and self-discovery. This is the kind of heart-warming, funny, sexy story that audiences are craving right now, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to have one of the hottest talents in the market in Vanessa Hudgens bringing this to the big screen".
