Nicholas Hoult will be speeding down the Autobahn on October 30 as Relativity has announced that as the date for their chase thriller named after the German superhighway.
Hoult stars in the film as a man on the run from a gangster (Sir Ben Kingsley) after he stole money needed for a medical procedure for his girlfriend (Felicity JOnes). Anothony Hopkins also stars.
When I reviewed screenwriter F Scott Fraiser’s script three years ago, I described it as “Crank by way of 1971’s Vanishing Point minus the latter’s existential ending.” When element I really enjoyed was the way that the script read like it was intended to be shot as one long, continuous shot and in real time. I look forward to find out if that vibe was picked up by director Evan Creevy.
