Europa Corp is known to make franchises , from Transporter to Taken Luc Besson has made franchises and created Action Stars. Jason Statham Sky Rocketed fro Transporter and Liam Neeson who had literally nothing to do with action became the hottest Action Star in Hollywood with the Taken Franchise crossing over 700 million Worldwide.
Coming from the same mind is another Franchise in the making. Over Drive is a well shot, extremely well executed movie. Starring Scott Eastwood,The story centers on two car thieves, brothers, who journey to the south of France for new opportunities and wind up in the cross hairs of the local crime boss.
Andrew and Garrett Foster (Scott Eastwood and Freddie Thorp) are thieves who specialize in luxury cars, only the most expensive cars. They’ve been hired to steal a gorgeous Bugatti 1937 valued million euros, so they head to the south of France for the job. But they get caught, and Jacomo Morier (Simon Abkarian), the local crime boss who owns the Bugatti, doesn’t take it lightly. In exchange for their lives the two brothers will have to steal a car from Max Klemp (Fabian Wolfrom), Morier’s arch-rival, and not any car, Morier wants them to steal Klemp’s 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO, his most prized car.
Now this does give you a felling of Gone in 60 Seconds , however this is younger and fresher . Directed by Antonia Negret a debutante director , the film has a well experienced crew with Stunt Coordinator Philippe Guegan making sure that the Stunt’s are of Europa Caliber.
Set to hit theaters in a few month’s the film is sure create it’s Indie Buzz , and buzz enough to spin of a franchise.
We at amdb.in wish the entire team all the very best.
