'Need for Speed' Behind-the-Scenes Featurette with Aaron Paul

Director Scott Waugh explains his approach to this video game adaptation, which is currently in production.

DreamWorks Pictures and Electronic Arts unveiled a behind-the-scenes featurette for their video game adaptation Need for Speed at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in Los Angeles earlier today. Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul is seen taking the wheel of a high-powered Ford Mustang, and director Scott Waugh (Act of Valor) explains his approach to this high-octane thriller. The story follows a cross-country race where drivers must elude both competitors and the police, centering on Aaron Paul's Tobey Marshall, who seeks revenge against his former partner (Dominic Cooper). Hopefully we'll have more footage from the set as production continues, but, in the meantime, check out this ode to The Cannonball Run.

Need for Speed was released March 14th, 2014 and stars Aaron Paul, Dominic Cooper, Imogen Poots, Scott Mescudi, Rami Malek, Ramon Rodriguez, Harrison Gilbertson, Dakota Johnson. The film is directed by Scott Waugh.

    We aren't talking about how well it's going to do at the box or if it's late to the party. Stop trying to inflate your argument with thoughts that have nothing to do with the issue. What we are talking about is if it's a knock off, which it's simply not. Need for Speed made a name for itself a long time before F&F was around. The only thing F&F did was popularize the idea of Need for Speed in the movie medium. And to think the Need for Speed IP can't make a movie because there is already the F&F movies it beyond absurd.

    I haven't logged on in over a year but I had to, to tell you Need for Speed has been around way longer than the fast and furious. Do some digging before you say stuff.

    F&F franchise is a knock off of Need for Speed. I love watching fast cars, plus I have a sports car.

    looks cheap and like a FF knock off. Cast isnt that great either to me so I see it flopping at the BO

    Well, it certainly looks like the games. I hope it doesn't suck cus it has potential to be better than Fast & Furious franchise if they play their cards right.
