Keanu Reeves Revs Up His ‘Rally Car’

With John Wick: Chapter 2 hitting theatres this weekend (and set to be a hit I might add ) word has come from EFM (via Screendaily & Film Combat Syndicate) that Keanu Reeves will be joining a movie called Rally Car, which has been picked up by Lionsgate for its U.S. release with plans to shoot in the U.S. and China.

Now for the bad news; apparently talent vacuum Olivier Megaton will be directing the film which centers on a self-absorbed NASCAR driver who learns to win as part of a team upon reviving his career in a cross-China race with a young woman who aspires to be a racer herself.

With Megaton directing we can expect incoherent action scenes galore… Ok that’s pretty mean of me but am I wrong?

Jeremy Lott wrote the script based on a previous treatment by Stephen Hamel whose shared Company Films banner with Reeves will produce with Fundamental Films’s Mark Gao and Gregory Ouanhon, and with Gary Glushon executive producing.

“We are thrilled to be in business once again with Keanu Reeves, who is extraordinary in the John Wick franchise, and we believe Rally Car has tremendous potential to see Keanu in action once again, this time behind a steering wheel,” said Jason Constantine, president of acquisitions and co-productions at Lionsgate. “Jeremy has done a great job with the screenplay featuring a multinational cast of characters and we’re happy to have Olivier directing another great movie for us.”
