Dania Ramirez (“X-Men: The Last Stand,” TV’s “Heroes”) has scored the female lead in the action-thriller “Premium Rush” for Sony Pictures reports Variety.
Set around Manhattan, the story follows a bike messenger (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) who picks up an envelope for delivery, unaware it contains evidence that could expose a corrupt cop. Said cop begins a desperate pursuit of the courier.
David Koepp directs from a script he co-wrote with John Kamps. Gavin Polone (“Zombieland”) is producing and shooting kicks off mid-July in New York.
