With this year marking the 15th anniversary of BMW Films and their The Hire” series, BMW’s announced that they’ll be returning to the short film scene and bringing back Clive Owen to play the lead role again. The Escape is the duo’s latest pursuit as just like the original shorts, we’re getting some real actors and directors with strong budgets and a highly capable BMW at the center of it all. Clive Owen will be joined by Dakota Faning and John Bernthal with direction from District 9’s Neill Blomkamp. The original BMW Films series, “The Hire,” debuted in 2001 with four films Fallon co-created with Anonymous Content and Director/Executive Producer David Fincher. The following year, the agency teamed with Ridley Scott’s production company RSA Films on four more.
