Karate Director, Keanu Team On “Rally Car”

“The Karate Kid” remake director Harald Zwart has been set to helm Fundamental Films and Company Films’ action film “Rally Car” starring Keanu Reeves.

Reeves will portray a hot shot former champion NASCAR driver who doesn’t want to believe his glory days are behind him even as his life begins to spiral out of control.

He’s soon forced to take part in a high stakes international rally race across the face of China, with a young Chinese girl as his co-driver, to prove he’s still the racer he thinks he is.

Jeremy Lott (“Spy Kids”) penned the script based on a treatment by Stephen Hamel. Reeves, Hamel, Mark Gao and Gregory Ouanhon will produce. Much of the same team, including Reeves and Hamel, are behind another film entitled “Replicas” which is already completed.
