Sam Claflin joins Overdrive film

19 July 2012

Sam Claflin has racked up another big movie role with a part in upcoming thriller Overdrive.

The Snow White And The Huntsman actor has been cast in the car heist film alongside fellow British star Emilia Clarke, reports Variety.

They join Karl Urban, who has already been cast in the movie about two adrenaline-loving American brothers who end up finding more trouble than they are expecting in the south of France.

Ben Barnes was previously tipped for the part which has gone to Sam, although Game Of Thrones star Emilia has been linked to the female role in Antonio Negret's film for some time.

Earlier this week it was reported that Sam is the frontrunner to play the coveted role of Finnick in the second Hunger Games film, Catching Fire.
