Paul Walker vehicle 19

Fast and Furious star Paul Walker is about to get back behind the wheel in another automotive action film this year alongside Fast and Furious 6 entitled Vehicle 19, an indie thriller directed by Mukunda Michael Dewil.

Walker plays an ex-con who winds up in South Africa in a bid to work things out with his wife and, in typical Hollywood-fashion, finds himself in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Things start to turn awry during a seemingly innocent ride in a rental car as Walker’s character makes some unsavoury discoveries – namely a gun and a mysterious woman being held captive. You know the rest: it all pans out to be a part of a criminal conspiracy involving corrupt cops, lots of gun fire and, mercifully, lots of car chases against black BMWs.

While the plot sounds like an unoriginal rip-off of THe Transporter, the trailer’s numerous car action scenes look potentially promising. After all, Paul Walker has had plenty of practice when it comes to looking good on camera behind the wheel of a car, and the vast majority of the trailer features just that.

Vehicle 19’s stunt coordinator Cordell McQuee is no stranger to automotive action either, as his stunt credits include Doomsday, Death Race 2 and the upcoming Death Race 3: Inferno. Like the aforementioned Death Race sequels, Vehicle 19 looks to predominately take place in a speeding minivan, so it could become one of the surprise highlights of 2013 for car chase fans.

Vehicle 19 is set for release on February 23rd over in Japan, with other release dates still to be confirmed.
