"Starship Dave" helmer Brian Robbins will both direct and produce a based-on-true-story flick entitled "Jailhouse Rock" for Walt Disney Pictures.

Just finished wrapping up "Starship Dave" for 20th Century Fox, Brian Robbins has already been faced with a new directing stint he is bound to carry out soon.

Yes, the Brooklyn-born filmmaker has delightfully been tapped by Walt Disney Pictures to handle helming matters on its new big screen project titled "Jailhouse Rock", which is based on a true story of an "American Idol"-like singing contest held in an Arizona jail found in an L.A. Weekly article.

Written by Joshuah Bearman, the article tells about Bret Kaiser, a heavy-metal musician-turned-detention officer at Arizona's Tent City, who rallied thousands of inmates to participate in the "Inmate Idle Singing Con-Test." Cell block hostilities were curtailed as inmates rallied around the contestants with Alice Cooper serving as a guest judge for the finals.

Apart from directing, Robbins will also produce through his Varsity Picture shingle alongside Sharla Sumpter Bridgett and David Klawans. The latter is known to last produce 2006's "Nacho Libre" for Paramount Pictures and next is set to perform the same duty on "Escape From Tehran", a film feature also based on an article by Bearman.
