Tuesday at the Los Angeles Film Festival, JuntoBox Films, a collaborative film studio chaired by Forest Whitaker, announced the greenlight of the company's fifth feature film: "The Driver." Whitaker was recently named one of Indiewire's Influencers for his founding of JuntoBox and Significant Productions.

Alex Ardenti is attached to direct. Penned by George Richards, the film centers on a down-on-his-luck boxer who agrees to be the driver for a heist. Things go wrong, and he's left with a dead partner and a bag full of cash. The boxer unwisely decides to keep half of the take for himself, but is found out by his employer, who gives him the ultimatum: Kill or be killed.

The concept behind JuntoBox is for fans and filmmakers to connect and create films, merging the collobaration of a social platform with traditional in-house film production. It will be selecting its next slate of films from various genres over the coming months: comedy in August, action/sci-fi in September and horror in November.
