As our own Michael Harley can attest, it's a low-speed affair, not an all-out speed-fest. As the rally passed through Texas headed through Dallas on Thursday, Hsinho Chen of Massachusetts, driving a McLaren MP4-12C Spider, says he swerved into the highway median to avoid a truck that had pulled in front of him. After slamming the $268,000-car into a ditch, Chen and his passenger went beneath a fence and then took flight before crashing into a metal storage building. The couple weren't injured, but their high-powered, low-production supercar won't be rallying again anytime soon. While there is no indication the car was exceeding the speed limit, Chen was ticketed for reckless driving. But that's not the worst of his problems. The McLaren was a $2,900-a-day rental from Black & White Car Rental in Los Angeles. B&W didn't respond to our email, but unless Mr. Chen is one of the company's owners, we're betting he doesn't get his deposit back.

The killer cast for the Kilburn Media thriller now includes a starring role for Liam Hemsworth (Armie Hammer was originally attached as the lead). Hemsworth now joins John Malkovich, Billy Bob Thornton, Teresa Palmer, Bruce Dern, Oliver Platt and Michael Stuhlbarg in the pic that is serving as the feature directorial debut of Matt Shakman (Mad Men, Six Feet Under). Cut Bank, a 2009 Black List script from Sons Of Anarchy‘s Roberto Patino, centers on 25-year-old Dwayne McLaren (Hemsworth), a former-athlete-turned-auto-mechanic who dreams of getting out of Cut Bank, MT, the coldest town in America. But his efforts to do so set in motion a deadly series of events that change his life and the character of the town forever. Production began this week in Edmonton.Laura Rister, Edward Zwick, Dan Cohen and Mickey Barold are producers. Kilburn Media is financing with its Alberta-based partner, Edmonton Economic Development Corp, with Kilburnís Mark Manuel and Ted OíNeal overseeing production for the financiers. WME and Untitled Entertainment are co-repping domestic rights. Canadaís eOne will distribute in that country and reps the film for international sales. “Roberto has written a uniquely thrilling, darkly comic and incredibly soulful script that has attracted a first-class cast and crew”, Rister said. “We’re honored to be part of the talented team that will bring this timeless story to life.”
