Into the Blue director John Stockwell has signed to helm gritty new movie KID CANNABIS, in a bid to subvert social stereotypes. The film-maker wants to shock audiences with his movie adaptation of a real-life story, which sees middle class Idaho teenagers mastermind a seedy drugs empire. He tells British movie website EmpireOnline.com, "I had been looking to do something in this realm that didn't involve minorities or urban drug dealers. "These were all white, suburban kids with no criminal records. They managed to transform themselves from minimum-wage workers to drug lords."
