Zac Efron Will Drive The Autobahn
Amber Heard calls shotgun

Having proved he’s a director to watch with Shifty and more recently Welcome To The Punch, Eran Creevy is now kicking things up a gear for road thriller Autobahn. He’s been attached for a while, but has now cast Zac Efron and Amber Heard as his speedy leads.

Autobahn, set (and set to shoot), in Germany, sees an American backpacker (Efron) falling foul of a Turkish gang when he agrees to take part in a scam.

Fleeing his pursuers around Munich, he must keep his girlfriend (Heard) safe and stay alive himself as they both try to untangle themselves from the mess.

This one has been in the development garage for a while as directors including Mark Steven Johnson have come in, tutted about not being able to get the right parts until Tuesday, and gone. Now Creevy, who has done a pass on the script with The Numbers Station’s F. Scott Frazier, is preparing to shoot in the autumn. Expect high speeds.

Efron has Parkland and Are We Official Dating? in the can. He’s currently shooting Nicholas Stoller’s new comedy Townies. Heard, meanwhile, has worked on Paranoia, Three Days To Kill and Machete Kills.
