Drive Hard

The short answer is no, and there isn’t a longer one. But let a man dream why don’t you? It’s been a while since John Cusack was a box-office draw, and it’s been just as long since he’s worn any color other than black. Coincidence? Probably not. His last lead role in a wide release was in 2012’s The Raven, and since then he’s starred in nine other films. Can you name more than one or two of them? Probably not. The same can be said to an albeit lesser degree for the careers of both Thomas Jane and writer/director Brian Trenchard-Smith. Jane’s leading man status of the mid ’00s has devolved into supporting roles in indies, while Trenchard-Smith has kept busy with TV and DTV titles since his early ’80s one-two-three punch of Stunt Rock, Escape 2000, and BMX Bandits. All three deserve a chance to get back into audiences’ line of sight and good graces, and their new collective effort is hoping to do the trick. Drive Hard (of course) is about a race car driver turned driving instructor (Jane) who gets coerced into robbing a bank by a friendly gunman (Cusack). As is wont to happen, all kinds of gunplay and vehicular hijinks ensue. Check out the first trailer below.
