Sam Claflin Presses Overdrive

Pirates Of The Caribbean / Snow White And The Huntsman actor Sam Claflin’s agents have been busy of late: he’s not only in serious contention for a role in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, but he's also set to join Karl Urban in Antonio Negret’s Overdrive.

Emilia Clarke, who has risen to prominence as Daenerys Targaryen in Game Of Thrones (all together now: “Where are my DRAGONS!”), is also signing on. The story, written by Wanted’s Michael Brandt and Derek Haas, focuses on two American brothers who decide to push their car-thief career into top gear by heading to France. But they end up running afoul of a much more dangerous criminal. So that’s a New Zealander and a Brit as two all-American siblings. Ah, Hollywood...

Negret, who launched his directorial career with Transit, will be working under the auspices of Taken’s Pierre Morel, who is producing. "We're going to do things that you've never seen actual cars do before on screen," Morel tells Variety. Oooh! Have them play piano! No? Spoilsport.

While Urban will next be seen as the titular law keeper in Dredd, Claflin is at work on The Quiet Ones for Hammer and Clarke is busy shooting the third season of Thrones.
