He's got a need, a need for speed. Disney has officially released the first two "first look" photos from Scott Waugh's Need for Speed, adapting the popular racing video game into another adrenaline-fueled action movie. Considering we've only posted the early featurette for this, it's worth sharing these two images as well. Following in the footsteps of the Fast & Furious franchise, Disney is getting their hands in the racing movie game. Up-and-comer Aaron Paul (of "Breaking Bad") stars in Need for Speed, along with Dominic Cooper, Kid Cudi and Dakota Johnson, all of whom can be seen in these rather stale early promo shots.
The first two photos released from Disney for Need for Speed, featuring Paul, Cooper, Johnson & Kid Cudi:
Need for Speed is directed by stuntman turned director Scott Waugh (Act of Valor) and written by George Nolfi (The Bourne Ultimatum), John Gatins (Real Steel) and producer George Gatins. Framed for a crime he didn’t commit, muscle car mechanic and street racer Tobey (Aaron Paul) gets out of prison determined to settle the score with the man responsible for his false conviction. Tobey tears up the road in a gritty cross-country journey— one that begins as a mission for revenge, but proves to be one of redemption. Imogen Poots and Michael Keaton also star in the film. Disney will release Need for Speed in theaters early next year starting March 14th, 2014. We'll keep you updated on details, photos and eventually a trailer before then.
