While he’s currently preparing for the US release of Fast Five (and also presumably gearing up for those sequels), Paul Walker is also busy working behind the scenes on his next project. The actor will star in and executive produce the indie thriller Vehicle 19. Directed by South African filmmaker Mukunda Michael Dewil, the film centers on a foreign traveler who picks up the wrong rental car, only to be caught up in a “web of corruption by the local police.”
Heat Vision reports that the plan is to shoot in South Africa at the end of this summer. Walker is currently doing the press rounds for the fifth film in the Fast and Furious franchise. Yesterday it was reported that future sequels will switch genres from street racing, to heist films. No word on whether the genre change omits Walker’s character.
