It was supposed to be a simple heist

Over one day across the streets of LA, three lives will change forever. In this breakneck thriller from director-producer Michael Bay, decorated veteran Will Sharp (Emmy winner Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Candyman, The Matrix Resurrections), desperate for money to cover his wife’s medical bills, asks for help from the one person he knows he shouldn’t – his adoptive brother Danny (Oscar nominee Jake Gyllenhaal, Zodiac, Spider-Man: Far From Home). A charismatic career criminal, Danny instead offers him a score: the biggest bank heist in Los Angeles history: $32 million. With his wife’s survival on the line, Will can’t say no.

Ambulance is produced by Michael Bay, Bradley J. Fischer, ( Zodiac, Shutter Island) for New Republic Pictures, James Vanderbilt ( Zodiac, 2022’s Scream) and William Sherak ( Ready or Not, 2022’s Scream) for Project X, and Oscar nominee Ian Bryce ( Transformers franchise, Saving Private Ryan).

The screenplay is by Chris Fedak ( Prodigal Son, Chuck), based on the original story and screenplay for the 2005 Danish thriller Ambulance by Laurits Munch-Petersen and Lars Andreas Pedersen.
