The family of one pizza delivery driver won't be watching the upcoming comedy "30 Minutes Or Less."

Brian Wells of Erie, Pa., died when a time bomb collar he was forced to wear exploded after he robbed a bank. The plot of the movie is similar to Wells' story.

Studio officials said they did not know about Wells, although they acknowledged that the screenwriters were vaguely familiar with his story.

The writers haven't commented on the situation.

The movie opens nationwide on Friday.
