Drive film franchiseEdit

The Drive film franchise consists of one film, although they are currently developing a second, and if they follow the second books plot, they will most likely have a third film, which may be the last because that is the latest technique in Hollywood. (For instance, The Hobbit, The Dark Knight trilogy, etc.)


Although only one has been released, a second film is currently being planned out, they say he will have a bigger enemy in this one.
