A high-tech action drama set in the dangerous, exhilarating world of open-wheel racing, DRIVEN centers on the lives and careers of four drivers chasing the ultimate adrenaline rush.

Talented but unfocused rookie Jimmy Bly (Kip Pardue) is slipping in the rankings, cracking under pressure from his ambitious promoter brother, Demille (Robert Sean Leonard). Plus it doesn't help that Bly is pursuing an affair with Sophia (Estella Warren), the girlfriend of his nemesis, top racer Beau Brandenburg (Til Schweiger).

With so much riding on Bly, seasoned car owner Carl Henry (Burt Reynolds) seeks help from former racing star Joe Tanto (Sylvester Stallone), whose once-promising career spun out after a tragic accident that nearly killed him and another driver. But to steer Bly to the top, Tanto must navigate his scarred emotional past, maneuver around the hovering presence of a reporter (Stacy Edwards) covering the male-dominated racing scene, and contend with Cathy (Gina Gershon), his ex-wife, who has since married rival racing sensation Memo Moreno (Cristian De La Fuente).

Caught between success, failure, regret and the need for speed, the four competitors are driven to put the pedal to the metal in pursuit of redemption and glory.

Welcome to the human race.

DRIVEN was shot over eight months at nine races in five countries, featuring coverage of real races - including the fastest car chase and racing sequences ever filmed - and utilizes state-of-the-art film technology to simulate the driver's point of view while traveling at speeds in in excess of 240 miles-per-hour. For the first time, a feature film puts the audience in the driver's seat of some of the fastest cars on earth. Directed by Renny Harlin (DEEP BLUE SEA, DIE HARD 2: DIE HARDER), the screenplay is by Sylvester Stallone, from a story by Sylvester Stallone, Neal Tabachnick and Jan Skrentny.
