Hollywood stars Ethan Hawke and Selena Gomez were "chased" by US police cars in the Bulgarian capital Sofia in a breakneck action scene from their new movie, The Getaway.

The film chase took place the night of May 15-May 16 in Sofia's streets where Hawke and Gomez were followed in a Ford Mustang Shelby, Bulgarian press reported.

Selena Gomez and Ethan Hawke are in Bulgaria to shoot "The Getaway", a remake of the classic 1972 flick of the same name, which starred Steve McQueen and Ali MacGraw.

Selena is believed to be playing Fran, the young wife of a veterinarian who is seduced by a bank robber and then forced to go on the run with him.

With the intensification of the work of the Nu Boyana film studios near Sofia, formerly the state-owned Bulgaria's National Film Center, Bulgaria has seen a steady stream of Hollywood celebrities shooting scenes there over the past few years.
