A movie about two good-lookin' brothers who steal cars and raise the ire of a local crime boss in the South of France? Yeah, we'd see that movie.
The pitch speaks for itself, but it gets even better with news that Alex Pettyfer and Matthew Goode are in talks to play the two good-lookin' brothers in question in "Overdrive," according to Variety.
"Overdrive" will be produced by Pierre Morel, who knows a thing or two about raising hell in France after directing "Taken," the rescue/revenge pic in which Liam Neeson punches out and/or shoots every single person in the country as he tracks down his kidnapped daughter.
The film will be directed by up-and-comer Antonio Negret, who recently called the shots on the thriller "Transit," starring James Caviezel and Diora Baird.
Alex Pettyfer has had quite a busy week, as the "I Am Number Four" actor also just signed on to play a younger version of Channing Tatum (sort of) in Steven Soderbergh's male stripper opus, "Magic Mike."
Matthew Goode (who we thought was great as Adrian Veidt/Ozymandias in "Watchmen," no matter what anyone else says) was recently seen charming Amy Adams with his Irish-ness in "Leap Year" and just wrapped the relationship drama "Burning Man."
"Overdrive" will begin production this summer in Marseilles (ah, to make a movie in the south of France!) with a look toward a Summer 2012 release.
