Terminal Island: The Very Near Future....
The world's hunger for extreme sports and reality competitions has grown into reality TV bloodlust. Now, the most extreme racing competition has emerged and its contestants are murderous prisoners. Tricked out cars, caged thugs and smoking-hot navigators combine to crate a juggernaut series with bigger ratings than the Super . The rules of the Death Race are simple: Win five events, and you're set free. Lose and you're road kill splashed across the internet.
Jason Statham (The Transporter series, The Bank Job) stars as, three-time speedway champion Jensen Ames, an ex-con framed for a gruesome murder. Forced to don the mask of the mythical driver Frankenstein, a Death Race crowd favorite who seems impossible to kill, Ames is given an easy choice by Terminal Island's ruthless Warden Hennessey (Joan Allen of the Bourne Supremacy and the Bourne Ultimatum): Suit up and drive or never see his little girl again.
A Miami native, Natalie Martinez (Case) is a Cuban beauty whose mother inspired her to audition for Jennifer Lopez's JLO clothing line, and ultimately beat out 5,000 girls and became the face of the line. She recently moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in acting.
Martinez made her acting debut in MyNetworkTV's Fashion House. She portrayed Michelle Miller, the wife of a manipulative and controlling husband Lance (Mike Begovich) who doesn't want her to pursue her dream of becoming a fashion designer, so that she can be a stay at home wife. Natalie also appears in the network television series Saints & Sinners.
