Sounded kind of interesting, even though it probably has no plot, I'd just like to see the cars. The trailer doesn't look that great though. You can watch it hereEddie Griffin is starring in "Redline," an auto thriller that will feature the destruction of one of the producer's own Porsches.
The film, shooting in Las Vegas and Chicago, also stars Nathan Phillips ("Snakes on a Plane") and Nadia Bjorlin ("Days of Our Lives"), and will feature a cameo from Wyclef Jean, who is scoring the movie.
But the biggest stars might be the personal car collection of the film's producer, real estate investor Daniel Sadek, who is financing the $26 million budget himself. Scenes will include his Phantom, Lamborghini Murcielago, Enzo Ferrari, Ferrari F430, Ferrari Scaglietti and two McLarens. In one sequence, a $200,000 Porsche Carrera GT will be destroyed.
"We want to do the real deal," Sadek said. "We don't want to do CGI. We thought it would create some hype. People will know we're destroying a real Porsche -- not a model, but a real one."
Sadek said the appeal of cool fancy cars knows no age boundaries. "Every kid, every man of every age loves cars. And nobody has seen all these cars in one movie, racing."
The film is being directed by Andy Cheng, who has worked as a stunt coordinator on such films as "The New World," "Collateral," "The Rundown" and the "Rush Hour" movies.
Griffin most recently appeared in "Date Movie" and "Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo."
