Open Road Picks Up Dax Shepard's Ensemble Action Comedy Outrun

Open Road Films, launched earlier this year by the AMC and Regal theater chains, has picked up all U.S. rights to the romantic action comedy "Outrun."

David Palmer co-directs. Open Road's Tom Ortenberg calls it "a wildly fun and funny movie." Sherpard stars in "Outrun" as ex-getaway driver Charlie Bronson who flees Witness Protection in order to drive his girlfriend (Kristen Bell) to Los Angeles to seek a new job. Their road trip goes awry as they are not only chased by the Feds (led by Tom Arnold) but Bronson's ex-gang (led by Bradley Cooper). Shades of "Midnight Run."
