The legendary video game gets a high-octane movie version!
EA's popular video game gets a big-screen treatment. Need for Speed is intended as a homage to the great car culture films of the 1970s. It centers on an underground race driver (Aaron Paul), who gets framed when his best friend is murdered at a race. Released from prison he is hellbent on getting his revenge.
Director Scott Waugh () is a sort of jack-of-all-trades. The filmmaker worked as a producer, editor, cameraman, and stuntman.
