"Need For Speed" Movie In The Works

Back in April, rumors swirled about a movie being produced about the “Need for Speed” franchise. Electronic Arts had a script in hand, written by the brothers George and John Gatins, and was deciding on which film company, Paramount, Warner Bros., or Sony, would make the film. “Need for Speed” is a video racing game and is one of Electronic Art’s bestselling video game franchises. Since its release in 1994, the series has sold more than 140 million units internationally and is estimated to have generated $4 billion in retail revenue.
DreamWorks has announced that they are adapting the popular video game franchise into a feature-length film with director Scott Waugh. The film is expected to be released in 2014. We predict that this flick will be similar to “The Fast and the Furious” series with the emphasis on cool cars, crazy intense stunt driving, and a suspenseful plot with loads of action.
Production for this film is expected to start early next year.
