Mark Steven Johnson has signed on to direct Inferno Entertainment's action project Autobahn, from writer Greg Russo.

Autobahn tells the story of a washed-up ex-Formula One driver who wakes up trapped inside a BMW on the side of the Autobahn, Germany's famed high-speed roadway, which has no general speed limit. He answers a phone ringing in the glove box, only to be told that he has 90 minutes to deliver the bomb-rigged car to a target or his wife and daughter will be killed.

Casting for the male lead is already out to actors. No production date has been set.
