"Green Book" director Peter Farrelly has lined up his next movie, which may or may not involve pizza-folding.

He will write and direct an as-yet-untitled film called "The Greatest Beer Run Ever: A True Story of Friendship Stronger Than War."

Since Farrelly is still best known for comedies like "Dumb & Dumber " and "There's Something About Mary," we imagine a movie without the word "Beer" in the title might better convey the essence of the story: It's about John "Chickie" Donohue, who, in 1967, decided to track down and share a few beers with his childhood buddies in the Army … while they were fighting in Vietnam.

Brian Currie and Pete Jones ("Hall Pass") will co-write the script with Farrelly.

"Green Book," which was Farrelly's first feature film that he didn't co-direct with brother Bobby,  was nominated for five Academy Awards. It netted Farrelly two Oscars (for best picture and screenplay) and a second win for supporting actor Mahershala Ali.
