Yahya Abdul-Mateen II  joins Jake Gyllenhaal, Michael Bay's Ambulance

Published: 12th December 2020

Yahya Abdul-Mateen II of The Trial of Chicago 7 fame will be starring alongside Jake Gyllenhaal in Michael Bay's action-thriller Ambulance. Though the story of the film is being kept under the wraps, it will reportedly have the similar feel of films like Speed and Bad Boys.

    The feature is based on the original Danish film Ambulancen (2005) produced by Nordisk Film Productions. Chris Fedak penned the script for the Hollywood version.

The story is about two brothers on the run from the police. They go on to steal an ambulance without knowing it already carries a female paramedic and a patient in critical condition.

    Actor Eiza Gonzalez, known for featuring in films such as Baby Driver, Hobbs & Shaw and Bloodshot, will play the role of paramedic.

    Abdul-Mateen broke out after playing villain Black Manta in superhero film Aquaman and later starred in HBO's Watchmen. He most recently played Black Panther Party co-founder Bobby Seale in Aaron Sorkin's courtroom drama The Trial of the Chicago 7. The actor will next star in horror film Candyman as well as Keanu Reeves' The Matrix 4.

    Produced by James Vanderbilt, Bradley Fischer and Will Sherak, Ambulance is expected to start shooting in January 2021.
