First Synopsis for David Koepp’s PREMIUM RUSH Starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Michael Shannon

     February 5, 2011

David Koepp, the director and writer of 2008’s Ghost Town and writer of action blockbusters like Spider-Man, War of the Worlds, and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, has been working on a new action thriller entitled Premium Rush – which he wrote and directed.  You’ll remember the films star, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, ended up with 31 stitches during the filming of one of the actions scenes back in July. You can check out pictures of Levitt on set here.  Anyway, we’ve been sent an early synopsis for the film and you can check it out after the jump.

Premium Rush is produced by Columbia Pictures and also stars Jamie Chung (Sorority Row) Dania Ramirez (Entourage) and Michael Shannon (Boardwalk Empire).  It’s slated for a January 13th, 2012 release:

“A New York bike messenger is given an envelope by a young woman at an uptown Manhattan college and is told he has 90 minutes to deliver it to an address in Chinatown. Complications ensue when an undercover police office appears and demands the envelope on special grounds. The truth, hidden motivations, and the life-and-death stakes on all sides are revealed through a series of flashbacks as the cop and the messenger engage in a length-of-Manhattan chase, racing against time after the messenger discovers the precious nature of the envelope’s slender contents. This movie also stars Jamie Chung (Grown Ups, Hangover II), Dania Ramirez (Entourage, Heroes), Michael Shannon (Boardwalk Empire)”
