Paul Walker is behind the wheel again. Only this time, he's probably thinking he should have hailed a freakin' taxi. Watch the "Fast and Furious" star in this trailer for the new car-themed thriller "Vehicle 19," which begins with an unsuspecting traveler (Walker) arriving in South Africa and picking out his rented mini-van. He soon realizes that the rental vehicle comes with a few surprise features: a loaded gun, a female hostage hidden in the trunk and a squad of corrupt cops trying to run him down. Hey, if you look on the bright side of things -- the car does have fantastic storage space.
Written and directed by South African newcomer Mukunda Michael Dewil, "Vehicle 19" currently doesn't have a US distributor, but it is expected to unspool in a couple of foreign markets later in the year.
You can also check out the Japanese trailer for Vehicle 19, which also has surfaced online.
A recently paroled man (Paul Walker) unwittingly picks up the wrong rental vehicle, having just got off a long haul flight. He soon realizes that he is the target of an entire police force that will use any means necessary to stop him and the tied-up female “passenger” he discovers in the trunk, from getting to the courthouse to testify against top-to-bottom corruption.
