Let's say you happen to own a smart and you've parked it close to a fenceless river edge, with the front wheels steered towards the water. What are the odds of a first-generation Cayenne, the heaviest one, oversteering into your smart and sending it nose-first into the river?
Well, if this action takes places on a movie set, those odds are quite high. The plot twist above is but a scene that was recently filmed in Amsterdam. The adventure took place on the movie set for The Hitman's Bodyguard.

Belonging to the action comedy genre, the motion picture will include Samuel L. Jackson playing an assassin who works together with a protection agent, played by Ryan Reynolds, clashing with an Eastern European dictator (Gary Oldham). Salma Hayek, who is also in the cast, was reportedly in one of the cars seen in the clips below.

These piece of amateur footage come from a former Londoner who lives in the area where the action was filmed - the woman used her smartphone to record everything and uploaded the clips on her Facebook page.

And if smart fans among you are wondering what happened after the little vehicle took a forced dive, one of the videos below shows the car being taken out of the water with the help of a crane.

While the script for The Hitman's Bodyguard was written by Tom O'Connor back in 2011, the story sat on the list of unproduced scripts for a few years, with the movie now being directed by Patrick Hughes.

Shooting is also scheduled to take place in London and Sofia and, if you're planning to see the motion picture once it's released, you'll certainly remember this scene. Meanwhile, we're inviting you to check out the videos below for a raw take on the matter.
