Karl Urban has signed up to star in 'Overdrive'.

The 'Star Trek' actor will appear alongside Ben Barnes in the France-set car thievery movie, to be directed by Antonio Negret.

Derek Haas and Michael Brandt have written the script for the project, while 'Game of Thrones' star Emilia Clarke is in negotiations to take on the female lead.

Filming is set to begin in Marseilles, France, on Saturday (29.10.11).

The movie came as a result of Haas and Brandt being invited by the French government to take a 10 day trip in the country in 2008, and finding Marseilles to be particularly cinematic, they wrote a script making use of the locations they had discovered, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Alex Pettyfer and Garrett Hedlund have previously been attached to the project.

Karl - who is best known for the role of Bones in the 2009 J.J. Abrams reboot of 'Star Trek' - will next been seen as the title character in Lionsgate's 'Dredd' in September 2012.
