Director to return to the world of fast cars for new action movie.

Rob Cohen (‘The Fast & the Furious,’ ‘Stealth,’ ‘XXX’) is set to direct the Andrew Hilton-penned actioner ‘Bullet Run.’

The movie follows “the head of an elite private protection team and his former CIA agent wife who infiltrate the closed borders of Iran to abduct a man who killed their daughter. The extraction goes awry and they force to rely on their world-class driving skills and a fleet of high-performance street cars to travel 200 miles through a hail of bullets to keep alive the man they really want dead.” Talking about the project, Cohen said:

“Bullet Run can be a unique and genre-bending action film with huge international appeal.”

Cohen will move on to the project when he wraps on his adaptation of the James Patterson novel ‘I, Alex Cross’ starring Tyler Perry and Matthew Fox.
