Cannes 2011: Taken director moves into Overdrive

Pierre Morel lines up new action thriller

Taken director Pierre Morel has lined up Alex Pettyfer and Matthew Goode for Overdrive.

The pair will play brothers, high-profile car thieves who travel to the south of France looking for new challenges and come across a tough local crime boss.

With a £30m budget, the Taken director, whose other films include District 13 and From Paris With Love, should have enough cash to provide the same kind of thrills he's become known for.

And with rising star Alex Pettyfer (who just got snapped up for Soderburgh's next) and Matthew Goode on board, the English-langauge Overdrive should have plenty of Anglo charm...
