Now here’s a movie we can have fun with — as long as we strap on our seat belts and try not to take it too seriously.
Drive Hard, directed by cult filmmaker Brian Trenchard-Smith (Leprechaun 4: In Space, Airforce 2: Down), stars John Cusack as a bank robber named Simon Keller who recruits ex-Formula 1 champion Peter Robert (Thomas Jane) — now working as a driving instructor — to be his getaway driver after Keller robs a bank. Fun? Yes. Is there a point to the film? We’re not entirely sure… but then again, isn’t that true of most heist films?
The film will be released by Image Entertainment, and while there’s no word yet on a release date, Voltage Pictures has kindly provided us with a new trailer in anticipation of the movie hitting screens sometime later this year. Discussion questions: Why, John Cusack? And how much did Thomas Jane get paid to wear that wig?
