“Keaton will play the reclusive and eccentric host of an underground supercar race where he invites the best drivers from around the world,” claims the trade.
The cast also includes Kid Cudi, Ramon Rodriguez, Rami Malik and Harrison Gilbertson. Scott Waugh will direct from a script by George Gatins.
