With Fast and Furious such a huge moneyspinner, it not too surprising that DreamWorks is wondering if it can have its own car-based franchised with Need For Speed. Now we get our first look at the movie courtesy of an on-the-set featurette, which unsurprisingly focuses on the automotive action.
Based on the videogame series, Aaron Paul stars as an underground race car driver who owns a shop that modifies sports cars for racing. He is framed for the murder of his best friend, who died during a race, and upon his release from prison he seeks revenge. Dominic Cooper plays a former NASCAR driver who now owns a high-end shop that rebuilds race cars, while Imogen Poots is an exotic car dealer who works with both Aaron Paul and Dominic Cooper’s characters.
Scott Waugh directs with a February 2014 release set.
