Wheelman seems to be taking the premise of the first scene in Drive and expanding on it, having the entire plot take place with the getaway driver behind the wheel, and sprinkling in several F-bombs along the way.
This first trailer should excite fans of Frank Grillo and wall-to-wall action. See for yourself, and be careful who’s within earshot:
Frank Grillo (Kingdom, Captain America: Civil War) stars as the wheelman, a getaway driver thrust into a high stakes race-to-survive after a bank robbery goes terribly wrong. With a car full of money and his family on the line, the clock is ticking to figure out who double-crossed him and the only person he can trust… his thirteen-year-old daughter. All reasons to think fast and drive faster.
Looks like a VOD action movie, and it might be a good test of my theory: when Netflix is proud of a product they’re putting out, the advertisement begins months in advance. When they’re less than excited about a film or show, they almost try to sneak it onto the platform with a few ads a week or two prior. Wheelman will release October 20, so…
Frank Grillo is a big international star, and an actor who is in things in the States. Along with him, Wheelman also stars Garret Dillahunt and Caitlin Carmichael.
