Amber Heard to ‘Drive Angry’ with Nicolas Cage?


Amber Heard is in talks to star opposite Nicolas Cage in director Patrick Lussier’s Drive Angry 3-D. The 23-year-old Texas stunner was last seen in Screen Gem’s The Stepfather remake and Columbia Pictures surprise monster hit Zombieland.

The Drive Angry 3-D synopsis reads:

The story centers on a man (Cage) driven by rage who is chasing the people who killed his daughter and kidnapped her baby. The vendetta/rescue spins out of control as the chase gets bloodier by the mile, leaving bodies strewn along the highway.

The film is written by Lussier and Toff Farmer, the team behind last year’s slasher hit My Bloody Valentine 3-D, and produced by Mike De Luca (Priest, GhostRider).

De Luca tells Collider:

It’s a hard R. Car parts and body parts flying at you in 3-D. These are the writers and the same directors of My Bloody Valentine, so it’s designed to … we’re not the high minded 3D of James Cameron. We’re the low 5, very fun, in your face kind of exploitation 3D.

Wow, they had me at Amber Heard, but this could be everything Death Race promised to be, but wussed out on.

Drive Angry 3-D is set to shoot in Shreveport, Louisiana come March. The Summit Entertainment release is slated to be in theaters on Feb. 11, 2011.
