James Cox was plucked from NYU film school after Hollywood heavyweights saw his short film ATOMIC TABASCO. After selling a pitch (ROCK STAR) to Jerry Bruckheimer, Cox was hired by New Line to helm their $14 million project HIGHWAY, staring Jared Leto, Jake Gyllenhaal and Selma Blair. In mid 2001 Cox and writing partner Captain Mauzner embarked on re-writing an existing script concerning the late porn-king John Holmes, and the Laurel Canyon murders of 1981.
