LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – Uber is already famous for its global hurling service, its hand delivery food, and its electric bicycle rentals. Now he inspired a comic action film.
“Stuber,” which starts on an international rollout Wednesday, is going around a light Uber driver who takes a Los Angeles detective who takes a brutal slaughter path.
A keen driver to increase his Uber ratings, pulling the Stu driver into a wild ride containing a shootout, chases, strips clubs and crime bosses.
The Director Michael Dowse said that the film was not sponsored by Uber Technologies Inc and that he was not involved in making the film.
“There is no sponsorship. We never reached them for permission or anything like that, ”said Dowse with Reuters Television.
“We have carried out legal vetting and stuff and the idea was that the game is fair because everyone uses so much. As long as you are not disrespectful about it and as long as you use it as used in real life it and you are not making up about how it is used, you are free to go. And it's a better title than ‘Stiffed’, ”he said.
The former wrestler Dave Bautista plays Vic police officer, who needs a driver from him to go around Los Angeles after undergoing eye surgery.
Kumail Nanjiani Stu, who works a day job and drives for Uber to supplement his income – so gives him the nickname Stuber.
