Well, apparently there is an upcoming film detailing John DeLorean‘s creation of his famed automobile and his subsequent entanglement with the FBI. Check out the first trailer for Driven below.
Really digging the two not-so-subtle Back to the Future references when the DeLorean automobile is unveiled, he says sarcastically. Honestly though, I can’t imagine anyone wanting to watch this film unless they were an avid John DeLorean fan or love Back to the Future.
So yeah, I’ll be watching this. Lee Pace and Jason Sudeikis are good actors, and I’m a fan of the DeLorean. It’s a cool looking automobile.
Set in early 1980s California, the story follows the meteoric rise of the golden boy of the automotive industry, John DeLorean (Pace) and his iconic DeLorean Motor Company, through the eyes of his friendship with charming, ex-con pilot turned FBI informant, Jim Hoffman (Sudeikis). DeLorean turned to unsavory activities to save his financially troubled DeLorean Motor Company, and it was Hoffman who was all too willing to lure the car designer/engineer into a cocaine trafficking ring set up by the FBI. Isabel Arraiza is Cristina DeLorean, DeLorean’s fashion model wife, Judy Greer (Ant-Man, Jurassic World, War for the Planet of the Apes) is Ellen Hoffman, Hoffman’s direct, no nonsense wife and Corey Stoll (First Man, Ant-Man, Midnight in Paris) is ambitious FBI Special Agent Benedict Tisa.
Driven hits theaters and On Demand August 16, 2019.
