I really don’t know how this passed me by. It’s crazy that it did. I dig both John Cusack and Thomas Jane, so to hear that the duo have teamed for an Australian set action movie is cool. Damn cool. Shooting on Hard Drive started Queensland in early June under the direction of Brian Trenchard-Smith (he also wrote the script) and it has just wrapped.
Here’s the official synopsis of the Odyssey Media and Voltage Pictures production:
“With a heist in mind, a mysterious American called Keller (John Cusack) arrives in Brisbane needing a getaway driver. Rather than recruit one from the local underworld, he tricks a driving school instructor, Roberts (Thomas Jane) into taking the wheel. Keller chose well, Roberts just happens to be a washed out Formula-One driver. Chased by the cops and the mob, Roberts is forced to use hi2s racing skills to evade pursuit on a Hard Drive that takes the two along the Gold Coast of Australia.”
I’ll keep you posted on this one as it comes nearer to release. It should be a balls-out crazy action B-movie – and we all know I like that sort of thing.
