It’s just a long shot following the car of the title. But that car has a horrific place in the recent history of Washington, D.C., as it belonged to John Allan Muhammad, the notorious "Beltway Sniper."
Here’s the synopsis of the film from Sundance: "An abandoned boy is lured to America and drawn into the shadow of a dangerous father figure in this film inspired by the real life events that led to the 2002 Beltway sniper attacks."
The cast may be the most star-studded of the Next program: Isaiah Washington (formerly of "Gray’s Anatomy") as Muhammad, Tequan Richmond ("Everybody Hates Chris") as the boy Lee Boyd Malvo, and Tim Blake Nelson, Joey Lauren Adams and Leo Fitzpatrick.
