Family, Investigator Question 'Pizza Bomber' Movie

Sunday, 07 Aug 2011 02:06 PM

 

PITTSBURGH — The family of an Erie pizza delivery driver killed eight years ago won't be among those in line when the comedy "30 Minutes Or Less" opens nationwide Friday.

Brian Wells died when a time bomb collar he was forced to wear exploded after he robbed a bank. The movie plot features a pizza driver forced to rob a bank while wearing a time bomb vest. A spokesman for Sony's Columbia TriStar Motion Picture group says the filmmakers and stars knew nothing about the Wells case, though he acknowledges the screenwriters were vaguely familiar with it.

The screenwriters haven't responded to requests for comment through their agent.

Jean Heid of Erie is Wells' sister. She says the movie isn't funny — whether or not it's based on her brother's death.
