American Film Market kicks off next week, so be prepared for a windfall of new movies being sold to distributors. Deadline reports that a romantic comedy called Outrun has been acquired by Exclusive Media Group. Parenthood's Dax Shepard wrote and co-directed the film, which he stars in along with Kristen Bell, Bradley Cooper and Tom Arnold. David Palmer serves as co-director on the film that has Shepard playing "an ex getaway driver who breaks the rules of Witness Protection to drive his girlfriend (Bell) to Los Angeles so she can land her dream job. Authorities and his former gang (led by Cooper) get wise and try to track him down." The film was produced by Andrew Panay with Nate Tuck, Kim Waltrip and Jim Casey.
I really like Shepard and Parenthood. He and Bell have good chemistry because they are an actual couple. What are your thoughts?
