12.24.2013 – Need for Speed a popular racing video game makes the jump to the big screen. The iconic racing video game has established itself as one of those longest running franchise that has been released in game consoles making it to the movies.
The adaptation of the game into the live action film would certainly boost interest now that there have been a lot of movies that has to do with fast cars. Certainly another film based from the video games will spark up interest with this new update about the movie.
Royal Purple has brought online a new video which shows how stunt coordinator Lance Gilbert pulled off one of the major stunts for DreamWorks Pictures' “Need for Speed,” starring Aaron Paul, Imogen Poots, Dominic Cooper, Michael Keaton and Dakota Johnson.
Directed by Scott Waugh, “Need for Speed” chronicles a near-impossible cross-country race against time, one that begins as a mission for revenge, but proves to be one of redemption. In a last attempt to save his struggling garage, blue-collar mechanic Tobey Marshall (Paul) - who with his team skillfully builds and races muscle cars on the side - reluctantly partners with wealthy, arrogant ex-NASCAR driver Dino Brewster (Cooper). Just as a major sale to car broker Julia Bonet (Poots) looks like it will save the business, a disastrous, unsanctioned race results in Dino framing Tobey for manslaughter.
Two years later and fresh out of prison, Tobey is set on revenge with plans to take down Dino in the high-stakes De Leon race - the Super Bowl of underground racing. To get there in time, Tobey must run a high-octane, action-packed gauntlet, dodging cops coast-to-coast and dealing with fallout from a dangerous bounty Dino put on his car. With his loyal crew and the surprisingly resourceful Julia as allies, Tobey defies odds at every turn and proves that even in the flashy world of exotic supercars, the underdog can still finish first.
Opening across the Philippines in March 14, 2014, “Need for Speed” is distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures International through Columbia Pictures.
