Most Anticipated Films Of 2011: Gabe's #4

4. DRIVE

Based on a James Sallis novel, this crime story concerns a stuntman turned getaway driver for a group of bank robbers who finds himself targeted by the mob. It was originally supposed to be a Neil Marshall car chase fest with Hugh Jackman (which would have been awesome) but instead it's something else with Ryan Gosling, from "Bronson" and "Valhalla Rising" director/madman Nicholas Winding Refn.

I expected kind of a tough guy collection of faces to people this film, but instead the cast is quite eclectic, with Ron Perlman, Carey Mulligan, Bryan Cranston, Albert Brooks and Bobbi Starr amongst the colorful names climbing aboard this film. Considering Refn's work so far, this is shaping up to be something just south of conventional. Psyched.
