Hugh JackmanNeil Marshall (Doomsday, Dog Soldiers) is stepping briefly outside of his normal genre box and taking a spin at directing Hugh Jackman in the upcoming film Drive. The James Sallis novel was adapted by Hossein Amini and follows a stunt driver who spends his nights driving get-away cars for seedy chaps and robbers. Things take a turn for the awesome when he realizes there has been a hit put on his head.

Marshall had this to say about the flick: “This is something I haven’t done before, and I’ve wanted to bring a British sensibility to an L.A. shoot and a scorched classic film noir concept.”

While I’m not sure about his British sensibilities, “scorched classic film noir” sounds awesome, no matter what it means! I’ve been a fan of Marshall’s for some time and love his genre work and am excited to see what he can do with a bigger budget, a bigger production, and bigger stars. All signs are pointing to ‘win’ on this one.
