Paul Walker To Produce And Star In 'Vehicle 19'

Briefly: Evidently happy being connected to starring vehicles that are oriented around, er, vehicles, Fast Five star Paul Walker has signed to exec produce and star in a film called Vehicle 19. The movie is about " an unsuspecting traveler (Walker) in a foreign country who picks up the wrong rental car and becomes tangled in a web of corruption by the local police."

The film is written and will be directed by South African filmmaker Mukunda Michael Dewil, whose only produced credit is the film Retribution. So that doesn't leave us a lot to go on with knowing what to expect out of Vehicle 19 based on his previous work. The basic premise certainly makes for a solid thriller, and we'll keep track of who else is cast. The film should go before cameras at the end of this summer, so we'll have more soon. [THR]
