BMW Films – Hostage

The Driver is hired by the FBI to help defuse a hostage situation.

The Driver is hired by the FBI to help defuse a hostage situation.

In this short film from The Hire series, the driver races to locate a kidnapped victim locked in the trunk of an invasion car somewhere on the water’s edge. Linked to her only by cell phone, the driver narrows in her location in a desperate race against time and tide.

This episode features a BMW Z4 3.0i (E85) and stars Maury Chaykin and Kathryn Morris. It was written by  David CarterGreg Hahn and Vincent Ngo and directed by John Woo. I remember watching it for the first time 20 years ago. Now there is a new, higher quality version of it online. Check out the 4K remaster here.
