While most of us nerds hear the word DeLorean, we of course think of Marty McFly and Doc Brown, and of course Back to the Future is largely responsible for the cars popularity, but there’s a whole other story associated with the car and its maker, John DeLorean. As you can see in the trailer above Mr. DeLorean became mixed up all manner of nefarious activities, all the while not aware he was being watched by the F.B.I.
Lee Pace (Thranduil in the Hobbit films and Ronan in the Marvel Cinematic Universe) stars as DeLorean with Jason Sudeikis as F.B.I. informant Jim Hoffman, and Ashley Greene Jim’s wife, Ellen.

I’m in on this film, I enjoy the work of Sudeikis and Ashley Greene, and even though I know the outcome of the events int he film it should still make for an interesting watch. I’m not saying it’s going to sweep any award shows, or that I will watch it in the theater, but I am interested in it and will check it out once it hits home platforms.
An official synopsis for Driven follows below.
“A fast-paced, comedic crime thriller of a bromance gone wrong between John DeLorean, played by Lee Pace (Captain Marvel, Guardians of the Galaxy, The Book of Henry, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies), and Jim Hoffman, played by Jason Sudeikis (TAG, Colossal, Booksmart).
Set in early 1980s California, the story follows the meteoric rise of the golden boy of the automotive industry, John DeLorean (Pace) and his iconic DeLorean Motor Company, through the eyes of his friendship with charming, ex-con pilot turned FBI informant, Jim Hoffman (Sudeikis). DeLorean turned to unsavory activities to save his financially troubled DeLorean Motor Company, and it was Hoffman who was all too willing to lure the car designer/engineer into a cocaine trafficking ring set up by the FBI. Isabel Arraiza is Cristina DeLorean, DeLorean’s fashion model wife, Judy Greer (Ant-Man, Jurassic World, War for the Planet of the Apes) is Ellen Hoffman, Hoffman’s direct, no nonsense wife and Corey Stoll (First Man, Ant-Man, Midnight in Paris) is ambitious FBI Special Agent Benedict Tisa.”
