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 comes to theaters March 14th, 2014 and stars Dakota Johnson, Aaron Paul, Imogen Poots, Sir Maejor, Michael Keaton, Dominic Cooper, Rami Malek, Nick Chinlund. The film is directed by Scott Waugh.
