Check Out the 'Need for Speed' Stunt Driving School with Aaron Paul
Even though the most recent trailer for Need for Speed makes it look like a hokey, racing, action thriller, we're still pretty intrigued to see what director Scott Waugh does with all the practical stunt driving and crashes. Now with a small taste of what Aaron Paul did to prepare for his role behind the wheel of some super fast vehicles, we have a short featurette looking at stunt driving school. Paul doesn't do anything too crazy, but it's cool to see that he learned how to drift at higher speeds and actually took the time to do some of his own stunt work in the car. We'll have to see how the rest of the stunts play out in theaters in March.
Here's the stunt driving featurette with Aaron Paul for Need for Speed from IGN:
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 DreamWorks film arriving March 14th, 2014.

Looks like a fun time with Aaron Paul. I wish he would have done a more dramatic role, but I will take more "Jessie" any day of the week.

I'm pretty excited for this. Didnt really care too much for the Fast and Furious franchise. I just want to see cars hall ass and explode off the road with very little focus on script, although, i do want the acting to be top notch. Cheesy acting and misused humor can really kill your high on a movie.
