Former "Beverly Hills, 90210" alum Jason Priestley will develop the true life drug-smuggling story "Death of a Freerider" says Variety.
The story is based on a Rolling Stone article by Jesse Hyde about Sam Brown, a 22-year-old Canadian mountain biker who took his quest for adventure into the multi-million dollar business of cross-border drug smuggling, which ultimately led to his death.
Chad Oakes and Mike Frislev ("Broken Trail"). will produce. Filming kicks off late 2010.
