Director Patrick Lussier Drives Angry

While speaking with the Vancouver Sun, director Patrick Lussier detailed the intent in helping to craft Drive Angry 3D, starring Nicolas Cage and Amber Heard.
In the interview, Lussier explains that major influences on Drive Angry were early 1970s films featuring action heroes like Clint Eastwood and Charles Bronson. Says the paper, "The leads were compelling enough to hold the attention of the audience, and the scripts had enough substance to give the characters dimension. In keeping with these relatively stripped-down elements, Lussier and co-writer Todd Farmer came up with Drive Angry, the story of a man who breaks out of hell in order to save his daughter's infant from a baby-sacrificing cult leader.

"'I guess it's a western with cars,' says Lussier, who tapped his old Vancouver buddy and UBC film-school grad, Brian Pearson, to lens the 3-D thriller. 'It's a violent and scary world ... with pretty chicks,' he says. 'What's not to love?' Lussier says they were extremely fortunate to get every single actor they were thinking of during the development process, from Amber Heard as the sexy and spunky heroine, to Nicolas Cage as Milton, the angry bat out of hell."
