Ethan Hawke and Selena Gomez to face off against Jon Voight for Getaway in August 2013

Oct. 26, 2012by: Alejandro Stepenberg

Getaway first sort of still

Now here's an actiony flick that just popped up out of nowhere nearly fully formed - GETAWAY, from Warner Bros, Dark Castle Entertainment, and After Dark Films.

The movie stars Ethan Hawke as a burned-out race car driver forced to get behind the wheel for a criminal scheme when his wife is kidnapped, with, and this is serious now, Selena Gomez as a hacker who helps him out. Jon Voight will be along for the ride (so to speak) as the villain (who presumably did the kidnapping), which all in all makes for an interesting bit of genre "what the f**k." Mainly what's weird for me is seeing Hawke and Gomez together at this stage in Hawke's career. Considering all the man does with the stage, with seemingly picking his projects carefully, with not even doing nearly as many projects as an actor of his stature could... well, it's just damn weird.

Co-directed by Courtney Solomon (DUNGEONS AND DRAGONS, AN AMERICAN HAUNTING) and Yaron Levy (camera crew on a whole bunch of movies you've never heard of) from a script by relative newcomers Sean Finegan and Gregg Maxwell Parker, GETAWAY is set to arrive August 30th, 2013.

I've heard this referred to as the poor man's DRIVE, but I don't quite see it.  That being said, the release date doesn't inspire much confidence - maybe it was in someone's contract that this had to have theatrical release? We'll let you know when a trailer drops so that we can all do a better job of judging just what this is exactly, but until such a time: what say you about GETAWAY?

Extra Tidbit: Selena Gomez's character is credited as The Kid.

I am really looking forward to this movie. I think that it is going to be really really good! Here is some more info about the movie. Getaway is the gritty, exciting action thriller from Warner Bros. in which former race car driver Brent Magna is pitted against the clock as he commandeers a custom Shelby Cobra Mustang, taking it and its unwitting owner on a high-speed adventure at the command of a mysterious villain on a race against time to save the life of his kidnapped wife.

Selena and Hawke... Count me in!

Selena Gomez and Ethan Hawke making movie magic together! Wow.. that's exciting. I can't wait to see Selena take on this mature role. No doubt she'll hit it out of the park.

Can't Wait

I think the cast for this looks great. Looking forward to seeing Selena in this role. Ethan always delivers as far as I am concerned.

Ethan Hawke

Love Ethan Hawke and have faith in his taste, too early to judge now. I'll wait to pass judgement when I see the trailer.

I think your initial read is wrong...

I think that your initial read is wrong. I don't know about release dates, but I worked on this movie for two weeks when they were shooting part of the action sequences, and I think its actually going to be more like what everyone was expecting to see from Drive and not the poor man's drive. They did some crazy stuff and it was all real.

She hacked the Matrix with her Apple Steve Jobs iphone while wearing a hoodie and an ironic tee and whining about big oil and the corporations she likes to mainframe haxor

wtf is wrong with people. At this stage thinking "hackers" are kids who are really good at typing fast and can do anything is retarded. Hackers are site admins who say 'hey how much would you pay for access to a security flaw that hasn't been addressed yet?' to a competing company. Then someone else notices that other people have not accounted for that same security flaw (could be anything from a url that isn't supposed to be indexed or a login error allowing brute force programs to work on it)

Whatever. Ethan Hawke can't catch a break.

Cringed at Selena Gomez. Face-palmed at "Dungeons and Dragons". Yeah, this is not looking so good.
