Picture this: "The Fast and the Furious" ... but with boats!
That's the premise of "Go Fast," a thriller about DEA agents chasing drug smugglers on the high seas. According to Deadline, Sony is acquiring the action flick, to be piloted by "Kick-Ass 2"'s Jeff Wadlow (pictured above).
Wadlow is a hot, up-and-coming director who is writing and likely directing "X-Force," an "X-Men" spin-off. More info on "X-Force" is expected from Comic-Con this weekend.
No doubt Sony hopes "Go Fast" can do with boats what "Fast and Furious" did with cars -- rev up a booming, multi-picture franchise that consistently brings in big bucks at the box office.
We wonder if Vin Diesel can swim ...
