John Cusack and Thomas Jane have teamed up for an action comedy called “Drive Hard” but the first trailer doesn’t make it clear if audiences can expect to laugh very hard, TheWrap said.
The premise has potential, though. Cusack plays a bank robber who ropes Jane, a former race car driver and current driving instructor, into being his getaway driver during a training session on the road.
The actors appear to have solid chemistry, but it’s the rest of the movie that should worry fans of the genre.
The movie from director Brian Trenchard-Smith — the filmmaker behind classics including “Night of the Demons 2″ and “Leprechaun 4: In Space” – does not yet have a release date.
