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.

This is not going to be good. Sketchy director, mostly poor actors. Maybe Aaron Paul's acting can save it? "YO!"

It'll probably suck, but I really hope it doesn't. We need some good video game movies.

"I've been locked up in a tiny cell for years. I've got a need for speed....Bitch!" I'm pretty convinced this movie is going to be bad, but hopefully it gives Aaron Paul enough to work with to get his Hollywood career rolling.

Ohhhh NO! Not another F***** Disney-made film. I NEED adult themes, adult activity, hard language, intense or persistent violence, sexually-oriented nudity, drug abuse or other elemental R-rated content in my movies!!!! Im sick of Disney. Stick to pixar movies and dont F*** up my Need for Speed movie!

This is a DreamWorks film. Disney is distributing it through their Touchstone label. There's a good chance it will be R.
