Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

Judy Greer is to star in 'Driven'. The 42-year-old ac­tress has signed up for the in­die thriller along­side Ja­son Sudeikis, Lee Pace and Ti­mothy Olyphant. The movie fol­lows the story of Jim Hoff­man (Sudeikis), a con artist who has turned an in­former for the FBI. His han­dler (played by Olyphant) wants to catch DeLorean (Pace) in a drug deal that be­came one of the cra­zi­est celebrity scan­dals of the 1980s. Greer is set to play Jim's wife Ellen Hoff­man, Dead­line re­ports. The film will be di­rected by Nick Hamm whilst Colin Bate­man has penned the script. Tempo Pro­duc­tions' Piers Tem­pest and Jo Bam­ford will pro­duce along­side Pimienta Film Com­pany's Luillo Ruiz. Blue Rider Pic­tures' Wal­ter Josten is ex­ec­u­tive pro­duc­ing whilst Blue Rider Pic­tures will fi­nance. Hamm said pre­vi­ously: "All film­mak­ers are suck­ers for a good story and this is a great one - and as yet, un­told. It's about am­bi­tion, suc­cess and fail­ure in a decade where ev­ery­thing be­gan to change. It's also an in­tel­li­gent and per­sonal drama about fight­ing for per­sonal suc­cess. An edge-of-your-seat, char­ac­ter-driven and comic wink to the world of power suits, dis­cos and vice. Above all, it's damn good fun." Whilst Tem­pest shared in a state­ment: "Ja­son and Lee pair in the main roles as a charis­matic and risk­tak­ing duo. And we're ex­cited to ex­pand upon a great film­mak­ing part­ner­ship be­tween Colin and Nick formed on The Jour­ney, in which they were so adept at cre­at­ing an en­tic­ing and funny story of sworn en­e­mies mak­ing peace pos­si­ble." Film­ing for 'Driven' is set to be­gin in Septem­ber in Puerto Rico.
