Jamie Campbell Bower drives through France
British actor Jamie Campbell Bower is to star in Overdrive alongside Travis Fimmel (Vikings). The heist thriller is due to shoot in the Marseille and Bouches-du-Rhone areas of France from early next year.
Campbell Bower, star of The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, plays Garrett, with Fimmel as his brother Andrew. The pair play a couple of handsome and daring car thieves who end falling foul of a big shot crime boss in the south of France.
Paris-based Kinology is the company behind the project. The film is produced by Michael Brandt and Gregoire Melin. Colombian-born Antonio Negret (Towards Darkness) directs from a screenplay by Michael Brandt and Derek Haas, both of whom also produce.
