George Clooney and Grant Heslov, the team behind 2012′s best picture, “Argo” are in talks to develop another film, “Coronado High,” based on a not-yet-published article by Joshuah Bearman, the journalist whose 2007 “Wired” story inspired the Oscar-winning film set in Iran.

The Wrap reports:

Bearman’s article has not been published yet so details remain thin, but those familiar with the story say it involves a group of teenagers who are used to smuggle drugs in Coronado, which is an affluent resort city near San Diego, California.

Clooney and Heslov will produce with David Klawans, who executive produced “Argo.” He’s also producing an adaptation of Bearman’s 2010 Wired magazine article “Art of the Steal.”
