WHAT IS CAR STEALERS...
Car Stealers is a comedy short film, written by Eric Roth and Directed by Christopher Guerrero about a group of ethical Car Stealers... think Gone In 60 Seconds meets Rushmore meets Robinhood.
Rayna is a misunderstood girl with supernatural powers. She has “something to prove” and an uncanny talent for picking locks. After running away from her shitty father, she finds a flyer with little paper tabs: the kind that usually say “Lost Dog,” or “Drummer Wanted.” This one is for the Car Stealers. The flyer introduces Rayna to Zeke, the charismatic misfit who leads a ragtag group of ethical car thieves.
After Rayna passes her first test-- stealing a bike-- Zeke initiates her into the Car Stealers. There she meets: Jill the explosives expert with a troubled past, Joe the mechanic, Dietrich Von Satchel the hacker, and Bob a real cool dog with likes to go fast and hates loud noises.
Zeke explains that the Car Stealers next job is to steal back his father's slick Honda Civic, a bitchin' car stolen years ago by an evil old repo man. The crew is skeptical of the personal nature of this mission. Joe, the mechanic explains: "Bad decisions run on a diesel called revenge. Anger steers the mind all crazy like. And soon we're careening down crime's highway with shot brakes, a sputtering engine, and 1 of 3 destinations: jail, death, or both." But Zeke talks everyone into it anyway.
The plan goes off without a hitch. Each character expertly performs their duties, and after a high-octane car chase with the cops they get the car back. When they arrive at their secret headquarters, the owner of the stolen bike-- from Rayna’s initiation-- shows up with a gun... Want to know the rest? Help us make the movie!
