Fimmel and Bower Jump Into OVERDRIVE

Riviera-set actioner lands new leads.

Travis Fimmel (‘Vikings,’ ‘The Baytown Outlaws’) and Jamie Campbell Bower (‘The Mortal Instruments,’ ‘The Twilight Saga’) have been announced as the leads in director Antonio Negret’s action thriller ‘Overdrive.’

Per Screen Daily, the film will see Fimmel and Bower “playing car thief brothers whose permanent vacation in the South of France turns deadly after they fall foul of a local crime kingpin.”

‘Taken’ and ‘District B13’ director Pierre Morel is on board as produce with Michael Brandt and Derek Haas providing the script.

Long-in-development, the project previously had Karl Urban (‘Dredd’) and ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ actor Sam Claflin set to star with ‘Game of Thrones’ actress Emilia Clarke playing the female lead.
