Rob Cohen, who directed xXx and the first Fast and the Furious flick, is back in action with bank job meets extreme weather action blast The Hurricane Heist.

As you may have surmised, it’s about a heist that takes place during a hurricane. It’s not just any old sizeable wind, however, as it’s a category 5 one – and that’s a biggun. It’s no dinky little bank job, either, as our felons try to fleece one of the US Treasury’s mints. Hey, if you’re going to aim, aim high, right?

Don’t you love it when subgenres collide? Hmm, we wonder whether there are any sharks blowing around up there?

Anyway, The Hurricane Heist stars Toby Kebbell (Kong: Skull Island), Maggie Grace (Taken), Ryan Kwanten (TV’s True Blood). While it opens in the US in March, we have no date as yet for an Aussie release.

Here’s the trailer, complete with painfully obvious soundtrack choice by Scorpions…
