Paul Walker Tries to Survive Hurricane Katrina in Indie Drama 'Hours'
In between the Fast & Furious franchise installments, Paul Walker has tried to do films to keep his career going outside of the Universal film series. However, most of those attempts have proven to be weak, and it seems Walker just doesn't have the chops to lead other films. However, he's certainly not quitting anytime soon, and the new indie drama Hours showcases the actor putting a lot of effort into making a point in the first trailer. The film follows a man in a New Orleans hospital with his pregnant wife as she gives birth. But what should be a happy day, turns out to be terrible as Hurricane Katrina begins devastating the hospital.
Before sunrise on August 29, 2005, Nolan (Paul Walker) arrives at a New Orleans hospital with his pregnant wife Abigail (Genesis Rodriguez) who has gone into early labor. What should be one of the happiest days of Nolan’s life quickly spirals out of control when the birth goes tragically wrong and Hurricane Katrina ravages the hospital, forcing an evacuation. Told to stay with his child, who is on a ventilator, Nolan and his newborn are soon cut off from the world by power outages and rising flood waters. When no one returns to help, Nolan faces one life-and-death decision after another, fighting to keep his daughter alive. Hours is written and directed by Eric Heisserer, premiered at SXSW and arrives in limited theaters December 13th.
