With Welcome To The Punch director Evan Creevy about to pump the accelerator on production on his latest, speedy thriller Autobahn, he’s added a few new names to the cast list. Ben Kinglsey, Felicity Jones and Anthony Hopkins are all aboard.

They’re joining Nicholas Hoult in the story of a young American couple on holiday in Germany who find themselves sucked into a deadly game of cat and mouse between two ruthless criminals when they foolishy agree to be part of a scam. Hoult and Jones are  the couple, with Kingsley and Hopkins as the villains pulling the strings. Those two know their villains, so expect some serious scheming from both.

This one has been idling its engine in development for a while, with various directors and stars such as Zac Efron attached at different times. Creevy, who has been preparing to make the film for the last few months, will start the cars and the cameras rolling on Monday in Europe. He’s working from a script by The Numbers Station’s F. Scott Frazier.
