NFS movie News: There's a Need for Speed movie coming ?thanks? to a script by John Gatins and Mark Sourian.
A Need for Speed movie is in the works, according to Dreamworks this morning. That means that all of the Hollywood actors who have echoed the line ?I feel the need, the need for speed? since Top Gun are having their wish answered by EA and Dreamworks.
?We are thrilled to be in business with our friends Steven Spielberg, Stacey Snider and the entire DreamWorks team,? said Frank Gibeau, President of EA Labels. ?They are the perfect partner to take Need for Speed to the big screen by creating the exciting action film that we have always envisioned.?
The Need for Speed movie script won't necessarily follow any NFS video game storyline. Instead, the original movie script was developed by brothers George and John Gatins. Attached to direct the video game-based movie is Scott Waugh (Act of Valor -- that military movie that you didn't go see, but uses that ?I'm Not Afraid? Eminem song in the commercial).
NFS the movie doesn't have any actors attached to it yet, but the projector ?will be fast-tracked? at Dramworks. Production is slated to start early next year and the movie is going to have a 2014 release date in theaters. ?Fast-tracked? sounds appropriate for a Need for Speed movie, but naturally worries us knowing how video game movies tend to turn out.
Further Need for Speed movie details reveal on the era to be the 70s, joined plenty of fast-paced high-octane. NFS the movie wants to be rooted in the tradition of the great car culture films. Only time will tell whether or not Dreamworks can pull off the film adaptation of EA's billion-dollar Need for Speed video game franchise in 2014.
