DOMINIC COOPER JOINS “NEED FOR SPEED” MOVIE


Videogame adaptation Need For Speed has added a big name to its burgeoning ensemble, with Dominic Cooper (The Duchess,The Devil’s Double) signing on for some handbreak turns and engine-revving action. With the game itself never being based around any
storyline to speak of, it always seemed an odd
property to adapt for the big screen, but screenwriters
George and John Gatins have apparently got a script in
place, with the first few details emerging online. Aaron Paul will take the film’s leading role as a garage
worker whose speciality is souping up racing cars with
various hi-octane modifications. All is well until a
friend of his is murdered and he finds himself tossed in
prison. Happily, he’s out again soon enough and
looking for revenge. Cooper will play another car nut, an ex-NASCAR driver
who makes a nice living doing up fancy motors for the
super-rich. Meanwhile, Imogen Poots will also appear
as an exotic car dealer who works with both men. That’s about as far as it goes in terms of plot details,
but it sounds as though there’s germ of an entertaining
little B-movie in there somewhere. Directed by Scott
Waugh, Need For Speed will open in the US on 7
February 2014.
