"When Oscar, a criminal with a dangerous past, discovers Cole's unique talents, he forces him to hack into the bank account of the young, seemingly wealthy Sarah (played by Turner) and empty it of nearly a million dollars," teases a synopsis.

"Cole soon discovers that a powerful, mob-connected lawyer has been using Sarah to hide his money. Seeking to bail her out of danger, Cole initiates a plan to replace the stolen money and begins to fall for Sarah. Ignoring warning signs that something greater is amiss, Cole soon finds himself pulled into an elaborate web of lies, deceit and betrayal."

DeHaan is in high demand right now, after recently joining the cast of Christopher Nolan's atomic bomb drama Oppenheimer.

"Beyond excited" to command the talents of Turner and DeHaan, Casey commented: "Both are incredible performers and gifted, talented artists in the truest sense.

"I know I speak not only for myself but also for the amazing teams at Star Thrower Entertainment and Highland Film Group in saying that I can't wait to see them bring the roles of Cole and Sarah to life."

Highland Film Group's CEO Arianne Fraser went on to add: "We could not be more excited to have Dane and Sophie team up for this hacking thriller from the superb writer behind the box-office behemoth F9: The Fast Saga."

Wardriver will hit cinemas sometime next year.
