Paul Walker

This week will see him in some high speed vehicles for Fast Five, but Paul Walker is currently looking at a vehicle of a different type. According to Heat Vision the actor is going to star in and executive producer an indie thriller called Vehicle 19. South African filmmaker Mukuna Michael Dewil will direct the feature, and he also wrote the script (apparently it appeared on some sort of list tracking the best screenplays, though the Black List isn't mentioned) which centers on an unsuspecting traveler (Walker) in a foreign country who picks up the wrong rental car and becomes tangled in a web of corruption with the local police.

Honestly, I'd like to say that this plot sounds a bit Hitchcockian, but including Walker's name in the same sentence as a term used to describe a story reminiscent of the iconic filmmaker just seems disrespectful. Sure, Walker fits in perfectly with the Fast and Furious franchise, but that's because Vin Diesel is just a robot programmed to act, albeit badly. The only two movies that allowed me to forget about Walker's almost complete lack of talent were Running Scared and Pleasantville. Maybe a filmmaker like Dewil whose yet to make it on my radar can work some magic with him. Only time will tell, stay tuned for more. Sound good?

    One can only hope that his executive producing is as well honed and subtle as his acting.

    He was great in Running Scared and who knows this could be good.

      Running scared was the only movie I didnt cringe in while watching him act. I hate his lazy cool guy nasle surfer accent ....drives me bonkers!

        If he can get back into that Running Scared character then this just might be awesome.

    The irony is that Ethan's radar is filled with nothing but rabit fanboy crap anyway. The other irony is that in the information age, misinformed opinion (which is rife on this website) is somehow rewarded.
