In theaters later this week, PREMIUM RUSH is an action-packed thriller centered on a Manhattan bike messenger being chased by a dirty cop anxious to lay hands on an envelope that threatens his career. Co-written (with JOHN KAMPS) and directed by DAVID KOEPP, the film stars JOSEPH GORDON-LEVITT, MICHAEL SHANNON, AARON TVEIT and DANIA RAMIREZ.
A classic “chase movie”, PREMIUM RUSH brings to mind scenes in such films as BULLITT and THE ITALIAN JOB and relies heavily on practical stunts rather than CGI gimmickry. During the recent press conference to promote the film, GORDON-LEVITT gave props to the team of bicycle experts who brought his character of Wilee to life on screen.
