BMW has released a stunning short starring Clive Owen and directed by award-winning director Neill Blomkamp (District 9, Elysium). The automaker hwHad previously created a set of shorts released between 2001 to 2002, under the title The Hire. Directed by some pretty big-name directors, including Guy Ritchie, Wong Kar-wai, and more, the series starred Clive Owens (known only as “The Driver”) and earned itself quite a buzz. This year the series returns with a stylized action-oriented short called The Escape.
The Escape takes place right into the aftermath of an illegal cloning experiment, and Molgen’s head mercenary Holt (Jon Bernthal) is tasked with escorting the last clone (Dakota Fanning) from the facility. The company hires Clive Owen as the chauffeur. Some twists and turns ensue. Watch the short and the BTS videos below.
