Stuber is an upcoming American action-comedy written by Tripper Clancy and directed by Michael Dowse. The film is set for release on July 12, 2019.[1]

Plot synopsis[edit]

A mild-mannered Uber driver named Stu picks up a grizzled detective who is hot on the trail of a sadistic, bloodthirsty terrorist & finds himself thrust into a harrowing ordeal where he has to keep his wits, himself unharmed, & work with his passenger while maintaining his high-class rating.



In April 2016, 20th Century Fox bought the spec script Stuber from Tripper Clancy for a mid-six figure deal, with Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley set to produce the film.[3] In December 2017, Dave Bautista was cast as a "detective who commandeers an unsuspecting Uber driver named Stu" while Michael Dowse was announced as the director of the film.[4] In March 2018, Kumail Nanjiani signed on to costar with Bautista.[5] In April 2018, Iko Uwais joined the cast.[6] In May 2018, Betty Gilpin, Natalie Morales, Mira Sorvino, Steve Howey, and Amin Joseph joined the cast.[7][8][9]

Principal production commenced on May 3, 2018 in Atlanta, Georgia and was shot until July 2, 2018.[10][11]
