‘Need for Speed’ First Look: Is This the Next ‘Fast and Furious?’

Subscribe to KEAN 105 on

The film adaptation of ‘Need for Speed,’ which is based on the very successful Electronic Arts video game franchise, is finally in front of cameras and will be hitting theaters next year. To hype the film, they’ve given a first peak behind the scenes at some of the stuntwork in the film.

And though the movie may have a basis in video games, it’s not hard to guess that the success of the ‘Fast and Furious‘ franchise is why this is being made now. That said, this brief featurette features a lot of practical stunts, with very expensive cars causing high-octane mayhem and helicopter chases. It also gives us our first look at Aaron Paul in the film, who will be coming off the series finale of ‘Breaking Bad‘ when this debuts on March 14, 2014.

It’s too early to get much of a read on the movie, but what’s on screen here makes it look like — if nothing else — it’s going to have a few pretty awesome set pieces. Here’s the film’s synopsis:

Framed for a crime he didn’t commit, muscle car mechanic and street racer Tobey (Aaron Paul) gets out of prison determined to settle the score with the man responsible for his false conviction. Tobey tears up the road in a gritty cross-country journey— one that begins as a mission for revenge, but proves to be one of redemption.
