Trio board action thriller as production gears up…

British stars Anthony Hopkins, Felicity Jones, and Ben Kingsley have joined Nicholas Hoult in the Eran Creevy-directed action-thriller ‘Autobahn,’ says ScreenDaily.

After a heist goes terribly wrong, Casey Stein (Hoult) finds himself on the run from a ruthless gang headed by mob boss Hagen (Hopkins). Now Casey has precious cargo that belongs to Hagen, who will stop at nothing to retrieve it. Left with no choice, Casey calls his former employer and drug smuggler Geran (Kingsley) to protect his long-time girlfriend Juliette before Hagen gets his hands on her. Casey sets out on an andrenaline-fueled car chase on the German highways to save the love of his life before it’s too late.

Jones will take the role of the girlfriend, Juliette, replacing Amber Heard (‘Three Days To Kill,’ ‘Paranoia’) who was previously set to star.

Principal photography kicks off next week in Germany with Creevy directing from a script by F. Scott Frazier (‘The Numbers Station’).
