You might expect that the first pics from a motor-head movie like Need For Speed would show off the cars, but instead EW have debuts images giving us a look at Aaron Paul, Kid Cudi, Dominic Cooper and Dakota Johnson in the movie.
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.
Aaron Paul says, ”This set was different than anything I’ve been on. You’re walking through a very thick cloud of testosterone. It’s really a throwback to the Steve McQueen era of car movies. I think people are going to be pleasantly surprised.”
On the characters, he adds, ”Dominic is kind of the antagonist of the film. Dakota is my character’s ex, and now Dominic ‘s character is the new guy she’s seeing.”
