Keanu Reeves jumps straight from playing “John Wick” to playing a giant dick as an American NASCAR driver in a race across china for “Rally Car.”
Keanu Reeves re-teams with Lionsgate, the same company that brought audiences the action packed thriller “John Wick: Chapter 2,” for a story of an egomaniacal American NASCAR driver who embarks on a race across China for “Rally Car.” Read more after the jump!
That’s right Reeves fans, while the dust has yet to settle from the brutally epic sequel to cult hit “John Wick,” Keanu is headed into another project and it’s all about his ego. Well, technically it’s about the ego of an American NASCAR driver who heads to China for an International Rally Race in a bid to restore his career. But, with the aid of a fellow Chinese female racer, Reeves’ self-centered character learns the value of teamwork.
“Lionsgate” obtained the U.S. distribution rights to “Rally Car” a few weeks back during the Berlin Film Festival. The project is set to begin production sometime this year and will film across the United States as well as China. The film will be directed by Olivier Megaton, the director behind “Taken 2,” “Taken 3” and “Columbiana.”
The “Rally Car” script will be the first feature penned by Jeremy Lott, based on a treatment by Stephen Hamel. Reeves will both star in and produce the high-octane thriller via his production company, Company Films, in conjunction with Stephen Hamel (“Passengers) as well as Mark Gao and Gregory Ouanhon of Fundamental Films.
