Nicolas Winding Refn is set as director, while Ryan Gosling has already signed on to play the lead role.
Synopsis: Drive centers on a nameless Hollywood stuntman (Gosling) who moonlights as a freelance getaway driver during robberies. When a bank heist goes wrong, he ends up on the run with a contract on his head and an ex-con’s girlfriend (Mulligan) in his car.
Drive will be a co-production between Bold Films, OddLot Entertainment and Marc Platt Productions. Filming is scheduled to commence in Los Angeles next month.
