Here's something you don't see every day (and thank God for that): a vanity project -- for cars. I mean, sure, you could look at Redline as the second directorial effort from stunt coordinator Andy Cheng. Or, maybe, a chance for Eddie Griffin and Nathan Phillips (whose representatives have taken to using his presence in Snakes on a Plane as a selling point -- I bet they never dreamed it would actually be a highlight of his resume) to become the new Bad Boys. But, really, let's just call a spade a spade: the movie is being produced by Daniel Sadek so he can show off his cars. Yes, really.

The movie is an "auto thriller," whatever the hell that means and, in addition to Griffin and Phillips, it will star Sadek's Phantom, Lamborghini Murcielago, Enzo Ferrari, Ferrari F430, Ferrari Scaglietti and two McLarens. Oh, and his Porsche Carrera GT will be destroyed in the movie! It's ok, though, because he has two. They're both worth $200,000, by the way -- just in case you were wondering. Um, woo hoo? Honestly, does this interest anyone who isn't Sadek? What kind of person would spend $26 million (the film's projected budget) to let people know he has cool cars? And who would agree to appear with those cars in a movie? This whole thing is more than a little repulsive, if you ask me. Anyone who reads this and thinks the movie sounds incredibly cool, please explain the appeal in the comments -- I need a little help here.
