Oscar Isaac Joins Nicolas Winding Refn's DRIVEDate:
FionaView original article »
So, we already reported that Nicolas Winding Refn’s movie Drive, based on the novel of the same name by James Sallis, is coming.
By now, you know that the movie has some serious cast, Oscar-nominee Carey Mulligan, Ryan Gosling, Bryan Cranston and Albert Brooks.
But today, we’re here to add another name to the project, because Robin Hood star, Oscar Isaac has joined the cast as well!
Drive centers on a nameless Hollywood stuntman (played by Gosling) who does stunt driving for movies by day and drives for criminals at night.
In classic noir fashion, he is double-crossed and, though before he has never participated in the violence, he goes after the ones who double-crossed and tried to kill him.
Mulligan will be playing the ex-con’s girlfriend, while Albert Brooks has been cast as Bernie Rose, “a transplanted New York mobster who comes to L.A. and is not to be messed with.”
And, at this moment, still no word on what role Isaac will play.
We’re definitely expecting to hear more details about this project, so make sure you stay tuned for more Drive updates!back to top
