The dumb lawsuit filed by Michigan resident Sarah Deming against the distributors of Drive because it wasn't Vin Diesel-y enough also claimed that the film was anti-Semitic. Specifically, the suit stated that Drive contained "extreme gratuitous defamatory dehumanizing racism directed against members of the Jewish faith, and thereby promoted criminal violence against members of the Jewish faith." If that assertion leaves you scratching your skullcaps, you aren't alone. Luckily, the legal mastermind behind the suit has been quite vocal about what he meant by that language — in the comments section of a movie blog.
A Michigan woman is suing FilmDistrict Distribution LLC, the outfit that distributed Drive, and the theater where she watched said Ryan Gosling action-drama thriller, all because the trailer had made it seem like the movie was gonna be just like Fast and Furious (not the gun-trafficking operation but the street-racing movie series) and it wasn't totally wasn't at all. WTF, LIARS.
Here's a trailer for Drive, the hard-boiled getaway thriller from Nicolas Winding Refn, the writer/director behind Bronson. Ryan Gosling plays a stunt driver for the movies who moonlights as a getaway driver for robbers and crooks.
