We’re being chased in a car the entire movie
– that’s exactly what Selena Gomez
had to say about her upcoming Getaway
movie a few months ago, and today we’re here to give you the proof – the first official photo from the action thriller which comes from directors Courtney Solomon
and Yaron Levy
, and beside Gomez, also stars Ethan Hawke
as the male lead!
Solomon and Levy direct the whole thing from a script written by Gregg Maxwell Parker
and Sean Finegan
, and just in case you still have some doubts about this project we’re here to remind you that this film is actually an original story, and has nothing to do
with the 1972 film The Getaway
which starred Steve McQueen
and Ali MacGraw
Hawke is on board to play character named Brent Magna, a burned out race car driver who is thrust into a do-or-die mission behind the wheel when his wife is kidnapped. The rest of the story goes like this:
With Brent’s only ally being a young hacker, his one hope of saving his wife is to follow the orders of the mysterious voice who’s watching his every move through cameras mounted on the car Brent’s driving.
As you already know, Gomez plays that young hacker, while Jon Voight
is the mysterious voice
. The rest of the cast also includes Paul Freeman
, Bruce Payne
and Rebecca Budig
opens on August 30th, 2013.
