Irish director Nick Hamm’s John DeLorean biopic Driven is all set to close Venice Film Fest.

Set in the opulence of early 1980’s California, it follows the meteoric rise of Delorean & his iconic DeLorean Motor Company; his friendship with a charming ex-con-turned-informant, Jim Hoffman; and the drug scandal that brought DeLorean low. Driven is scheduled to world premiere out of competition on Lido on 8th Sept 2018.
