Inspired by true events, Driven is a wickedly comedic look at a bromance gone bad. Set in the opulence of early 1980s California, the story follows the meteoric rise of John DeLorean, and his iconic DeLorean Motor Company, through his friendship with charming ex-con turned FBI informant, Jim Hoffman.
Directed by Nick Hamm, from an original screenplay by Colin Bateman (The Journey) and financed by Romulus Entertainment, Driven is produced by Piers Tempest of Tempo Productions, Luillo Ruiz of The Pimienta Film Company and Brad Feinstein of Romulus Entertainment.
The cast of Driven is led by Lee Pace (Guardians of the Galaxy, The Hobbit) as motoring engineer and designer John DeLorean, Jason Sudeikis (Downsizing), as Jim Hoffman, DeLorean’s friend and con-man tuned FBI informant, Judy Greer (Ant-Man) as Hoffman’s strong-willed wife Ellen, and Corey Stoll (House of Cards, Midnight in Paris) as ambitious FBI agent Benedict Tissa.
