Kensit, Getty hit ‘Speedway’

Thesps join Hannah in low-budget drama

Patsy Kensit and Balthazar Getty have joined Daryl Hannah in first-time helmer Nickolas Perry’s “Speedway Junky.”

The low-budget race drama is being exec produced by Gus Van Sant and financed by Menahem Golan and Yoram Globus’ First Miracle Group.

Pic is being produced by Randall Emmett Films’ Randall Emmett, Omanoff Films’ Rodney Omanoff and Innovative Films’ George Furla and Jeff Rice.

Omanoff and Emmett were partnered in Omanoff/Emmett Films, but Emmett has now formed his own moniker.

Kensit’s credits include “Absolute Beginners,” “Lethal Weapon 2,” “Blame It on the Bellboy” and “Angels and Insects.” She is repped by Kari Whittlesey at Paradigm and Dagger Entertainment’s Steve Dagger.

Getty has appeared in “Natural Born Killers,” “Judge Dredd,” “Mr. Holland’s Opus” and “Lost Highway.” He is repped by UTA and Hines Management’s Kimberly Hines.

Emmett negotiated on behalf of the producers.

“Junky” begins shooting in Los Angeles and Las Vegas on July 13.
