MINNIE DRIVER is set to star in a gay comedy with BEN STILLER. The British star of HIGH HEELS AND LOW LIfES (2001), is one of Hollywood's hottest properties at the moment - and has been lined up to partner THERE'S SOMETHING ABOUT MARY (1998) star Stiller in BOY TOWN.
The story focuses on a bigoted agent who has to infiltrate the gay community in Los Angeles to solve a murder. While on the killer's trail, Stiller falls hopelessly in love with a studio worker played by Driver.
Walt Disney is backing the $26million (£20 million) movie, which has been written by JORDAN BUDDE and ROBERT ELLSWORTH. (IG/WNWCAN/KMW)
