Relativity Studios and IM Global have set Oct. 30 as the U.S. release date for action-thriller “Autobahn,” starring Nicholas Hoult, Felicity Jones, Anthony Hopkins and Ben Kingsley.

Eran Creevy (‘Welcome to the Punch”) directed the film from a script he co-wrote with F. Scott Frazier.

The story involves Hoult’s character scheming to pull a drug heist for an eccentric gangster (played by Kingsley) to pay for his girlfriend’s medical emergency. Hopkins portrays an evil druglord menacing the girlfriend, played by Jones.

IM Global and China’s DMG Entertainment financed the film, with additional financing provided by Sycamore Pictures and Ingenious Media. “Autobahn” was produced by Joel Silver, Ben Pugh and Rory Aitken of 42, Brian Kavanaugh-Jones of Automatik and Daniel Hetzer of Germany’s Action Concept.

Relativity acquired U.S. distribution rights in November.
