Terror is back behind the wheel as Joy Ride 3 began production in Winnipeg, Manitoba on September 3.
With shooting underway, Fox has shared a slew of behind-the-scenes images, one including star Ben Hollingsworth with his dummy look-a-like, surely to get smashed, as well as some fun effects shots. Overheard on the set of last night: “Lets pick up the digits…we’re going to be using those later.”
This gruesome third-installment of the franchise that follows 2001’s Joy Ride starring Paul Walker (The Fast and the Furious Franchise) and 2008’s Joy Ride 2: Dead Ahead, is written and directed by direct-to-video maven Declan O’Brien (Wrong Turn 4: Bloody Beginnings, Wrong Turn 5: Bloodlines).
“Rusty Nail is back on the road again looking to punish injustice at every turn — and this time it’s with a group of hotheaded street racers on their way to the Road Rally 1000. As they drive through a desolate shortcut on the way to the race, an encounter with Rusty turns sour and soon he is tracking, teasing and torturing them until the end of the road.”
Joy Ride 3 is produced by Kim Todd (Wrong Turn 4: Bloody Beginnings) and will be distributed by Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment in Summer 2014 on Blu-ray, DVD, Digital HD and VOD.
