Warner Bros. has released a new trailer for director Courtney Solomon‘s (Dungeons & Dragons) upcoming thriller Getaway.  The film stars Ethan Hawke as a former race car driver who commandeers a Shelby Cobra Mustang and is saddled with a young hacker (Selena Gomez) in a race against time to save his wife from a mysterious kidnapper, played by Jon Voight.  To be completely honest I am jazzed about the bulk of the cast.  Hawke and Voight are always solid, but the prospect of Selena Gomez portraying a street smart hacker leaves me scratching my head. We haven’t seen her in action yet, but based on her past performances, I am afraid she may torpedo this film, and turn it into a poor man’s Fast and Furious.

Getaway also stars Rebecca Budig and Bruce Payne and opens in theaters on August 30th.

Here’s the official synopsis for Getaway:

Getaway is the gritty, heart-pounding action thriller from Warner Bros. Pictures and Dark Castle Entertainment in which former race car driver Brent Magna (Ethan Hawke) is pitted against the clock. Desperately trying to save the life of his kidnapped wife, Brent commandeers a custom Shelby Cobra Mustang, taking it and its unwitting owner (Selena Gomez) on a high-speed race against time, at the command of the mysterious villain holding his wife hostage.
