Yune races to ‘Redline’ with Walker for Universal

Helmer Cohen to start L.A. shoot in July

Rick Yune, who starred in “Snow Falling on Cedars,” will join Paul Walker in Universal Pictures street-car racing drama “Redline.”

Yune will play the head of a race-car gang for the project, which previously had been titled “Racer X.” Walker will portray an undercover police officer infiltrating street racers to bust a hijacking ring.

Director Rob Cohen, who plans to start principal photography for “Redline” in July in Los Angeles, said Yune’s performance in “Cedars” made him a strong candidate for the new role, in which he plays a James Dean-type character.

Yune is repped by Gold/Marshak/Liedtke.
