The first rumors of a Need for Speed movie popped up way back in April, but today we’re getting theofficial confirmation (opens in new tab)that a movie deal is underway between Dreamworks and EA.
Many details about the project are still unknown, but we know that EA along with John Gatins and Mark Sourianmad will be producing the picture, while Scott Woagh will be the director. Woagh previously co-directed the critically panned Act of Valor (opens in new tab).
They’ve said the film will be “a fast-paced, high-octane film rooted in the tradition of the great car culture films of the 70s.” No actors have yet been announced, but we’d be pretty surprised if Vin Diesel didn’t show up in there somewhere.
Time to place your bets on how many slow-motion shots of Lamborghinis busting through police barricades there will be. We’re putting the over/under at 7.
