Need for Speed

Right now, E3 is giving video game nerds their fix on all the cool stuff coming their way (including a new Star Wars Battlefront game), but along with that came a treat for film fans as well. The Electronic Arts racing game Need for Speed is getting a big screen adaptation from director Scott Waugh with "Breaking Bad" star Aaron Paul in the lead, and the game studio brought a taste of the high speed action adventure to show fans at the convention. The featurette dives behind the scenes of the film with a glimpse at some pretty damn impressive car stunt work, and our first look at Paul getting behind the wheel. Watch below!

Here's the first look at Scott Waugh's Need for Speed from the film's official YouTube:

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. Dominic Cooper, Imogen Poots and Michael Keaton also star in the film arriving next year March 14th, 2014.

      idk about this scott mescudi guy they've brought in off the streets, but from my understanding he also has a small music career

    Neat. I hope they realize that this really just needs to be great action and does not need any attempt at an earnest story. That would just make it stupid.
  • Crick
    No hopes for this..such a big game hope!
  • I wonder if by saying it's authentic to real car racing, he means it will be a group of men in their mid twenties driving around with 15 and 16 year old girls?
  • Danimal
    "Very accurate to car racing culture"...cause all race drivers aim to kill each other...
  • Lagoya
    Why did the P1 have to die?! :(

    Looks somewhat cheap.
  • cobrazombie
    The Cannonball run at warp speed. Looks dumb as hell, but I don't blame Aaron Paul for taking the cash.
