Earlier this year, Scott Eastwood joined the Fast and Furious family in The Fate of the Furious. Now, just a few months later, the younger Eastwood is getting behind the wheel of his own automotive movie in Overdrive, written by the team behind 2 Fast 2 Furious and helmed by Antonio Neret, director of the first Taken film. Joining Eastwood in the high-octane adventure is newcomer Freddie Thorp in what is poised to be his breakout role. Also in Overdrive is Blade Runner 2049‘s Ana de Armas, meaning that the Cuban actress has two movies opening in the same week.
Overdrive lands in theaters and on VOD this Friday, October 6th and we have an exclusive clip from the speedy action flick. In the clip, Scott Eastwood is behind the wheel and being chased by the police. It may not be on the immense scale of The Fate of the Furious, but those who love some good ol’ fashioned motorized mayhem will certainly love the vehicular chaos on display.
Enjoy the clip and be sure to check out Overdrive in theaters and on demand this Friday, October 6th.
The official synopsis for Overdrive:
From the writers of 2 Fast 2 Furious and the director of Taken, Overdrive is a high-octane, action-packed joyride. Legendary car thieves Andrew (Scott Eastwood) and Garrett (Freddie Thorp) are caught in the act of stealing from notorious crime boss Jacomo Morier. In order to win back their freedom they’re put to the ultimate test – the theft of a priceless car from Morier’s sworn enemy. While putting together a crew to pull off the daring heist they’re joined by two beautiful women (Ana de Armas & Gaia Weiss) who are more dangerous than they look. The team has one week to put the plan in motion, steal the car, and make their escape or lose everything, including their lives.
