Frank Grillo Is A Getaway Driver In Wheelman Teaser Trailer

Frank Grillo is speeding away from his enemies in the first teaser trailer for his upcoming Netflix thriller Wheelman. The movie stars Grillo as a getaway driver who finds himself in a life-or-death situation after a bank robbery gone wrong. As he deals with mysterious orders from an unknown caller, he'll have to figure out who double-crossed him before his family pays the price. 

The teaser trailer builds up to him getting that call, alternating images of him waiting in his car with images of speeding, shootings, and murder. It ends with his phone ringing, with the caller ID showing an out of area number. Grillo's character answers the call, kicking off even more of the amazing action montage.

Wheelman was written and directed by No Road to Follow's Jeremy Rush, with Grillo and his frequent collaborator Joe Carnahan (The A-Team) producing. "What appealed to me about Wheelman was its brutal simplicity and the fact that it was a father-daughter story, disguised as an action film," Carnahan previously said of the film. "There was and remains a very '70s sensibility about the movie. It has [its] roots in films like Vanishing Point, Bullitt, and The Driver. There was a parsed down, spare, lean quality to the writing that reminded me of a Jim Thompson or Donald E. Westlake novel."

While the new teaser doesn't reveal much about Wheelman, it does show that the whole team will be in top action form in the thriller. The film, which will hopefully get a full trailer soon, is set to hit Netflix on Oct. 20; for now, see some other upcoming originals you didn't realize the streamer was working on
