Jack Gillenhall unveils a crazy stunt in the new Michael Bay film “Ambulance”, in which he drives a stolen ambulance full of hostages while being chased by police on the banks of the Los Angeles River in the role of a career criminal.
Although the stunt is the movie’s showpiece, Bay – who has shown his faith in action-movies in films such as “Transformers”, “Bad Boys” and “Armageddon” – did not have that scene in the original script, and created the spot.
