After rising to fame as Archie Andrews on the hit drama Riverdale, KJ Apa is heading to the big screen in an unrecognizable new look! The actor has teamed up with Eric Dane for an upcoming R-rated action thriller, One Fast Move, in which Apa plays a hotheaded cycling fanatic who asks his father for help to become the best in the sport! The film’s creator reveals the inspiration behind the themes.

The I Still Believe actor plays Wes, “a down-on-his-luck young man who seeks out his estranged father (Eric Dane) to help him pursue his dream of becoming a professional motorcycle racer,” according to the official synopsis.

In the trailer, Wes is released from prison and decides to return to a normal life. He reconnects with his estranged father, Dean. A few awkward conversations later, the father and son hash out their differences while Dean decides to teach Wes, a rookie, the art of racing.

“Hey, look! I taught him that outside pass!” Dean says at one point in the trailer. “The faster I go, the calmer I feel,” Wes says. “So you just have to keep going faster,” his father, his mentor, replies.

Apa’s character also has a love affair with Maia Reficco, a motorcycle shop owner, who becomes a beacon for Wes as he tries to reconnect with his father.

One Fast Move Director Shares Inspiration Behind Film

The action drama’s director, Kelly Blatz, told Entertainment Weekly that the inspiration behind One Fast Move was her love of sports dramas, “like The Fighter, Ford v. Ferrari and Rocky.”

As a “motorcycle enthusiast” Blatz realized that no film had focused on the exciting sport of motorcycle racing. So making the film was a tribute to the motorcycle racers and her love for the sport.

Blatz and her team set out to create a film that authentically captured the “excitement and danger of motorcycle racing” while delivering a compelling, character-driven drama. The action drama, written and directed by Blatz, also stars Edward James Olmos and Maia Reficco.

One Fast Move will be available to stream on Prime Video from August 8, 2024.
