Timothy Olyphant, Lee Pace and Jason Sudeikis are set to star in “Driven” which Embankment Films will sell at Cannes next month. Sudeikis stars as Jim Hoffman, a con artist-turned-informer for the FBI in the war on drugs.
Olyphant plays his handler, determined to snare the world-famous but enigmatic John DeLorean (Pace) who is desperate for cash, to the point of drug dealing, to finance his dream of designing the ultimate car of the future.
Nick Hamm (“The Journey,” “The Hole”) will direct with Colin Bateman penning the script while Piers Tempest, Jo Bamford and Luillo Ruiz are producing. Filming begins in September in Puerto Rico.
