In the 1980s, international rallying was virtually unrestricted. The cars became more and more powerful until a series of horrifying fatal crashes led to the series' cancellation. It's a story worthy of a film. In fact, one is getting made right now and it stars the dude from Game of Thrones.

Director and writer Nick Rowland offers the following description for the trailer released today.

Rally driver Shane Hunter faces his comeback to Group B competition after a long and troubled absence.

NFTS Graduation Film staring Richard Madden and Michael Smiley. Stunt driving by David Higgins.

Yes, that's Robb Stark in a rally car, stunt driven by the current reigning Rally America champion. It appears the story focuses around some kind of crash, either life-ending or nearly so. This is very much fitting with the age.

I cannot wait.
