Need for Speed Movie Plot Detailed

Posted on November 8, 2012 AT 07:18am

Plot details of Dreamwork’s adaptation of the Need for Speed franchise for the big screen have appeared online. There’s also word that Dominic Cooper–appeared in Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter and Captain America: The First Avenger–has been approached to star in the film.

According to Variety, the film “follows an underground race car driver (Paul) who owns a garage that modifies expensive cars to make them faster for racing. Framed and sent to prison when his best friend is murdered during a race, he seeks revenge upon his release.”

Dreamwork’s acquired the rights to Need for Speed back in June and has fast tracked the film for a 2014 release. According to the company, the film will use a completely original story and is not based on any of the games.

Are you looking forward to the film? Let us know in the comments below.

He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
