The British writer - who has worked on blockbuster Hollywood films such as Iron Man 3 and Mission: Impossible 5 - will make his directorial debut with The Long Run, which he also penned.
Few details about the project are known, other than that it is an original crime action comedy, reported Deadline.
Drew tweeted a link to the news story announcing the deal, saying: "Small beans for the universe. Big beans for me..."
In response to a congratulatory tweet, he later added: "Fingers crossed I don't utterly f*** it up."

Keep precious possessions safe. Don't leave valuables in a parked car; instead, stow them in the boot. Lock your doors. Create passwords that are hard to crack. Simple measures like these will save you a world of trouble. The last thing you want is to waste time filing police reports. If you do become the victim of theft, stay calm. Ask the authorities what you can do to protect yourself from future crimes. Smart decisions are your best defence.More
