Dreamworks has shared with Mania another Behind-the-Scenes featurette for Need for Speed. This behind-the-scenes feature is titled “Camera Cars”. 

Press Release: DreamWorks Pictures’ “Need for Speed” marks an exciting return to the great car culture films of the 1960s and ’70s, when the authenticity of the world brought a new level of intensity to the action on-screen. Tapping into what makes the American myth of the open road so appealing, the story chronicles a near-impossible cross-country journey for our heroes — one that begins as a mission for revenge, but proves to be one of redemption. Based on the most successful racing video game franchise ever with over 140 million copies sold, "Need for Speed" captures the freedom and excitement of the game in a real-world setting, while bringing to life the passion for the road that has made our love of cars so timeless.

The film centers around Tobey Marshall (Aaron Paul), a blue-collar mechanic who races muscle cars on the side in an unsanctioned street-racing circuit. Struggling to keep his family-owned garage afloat, he reluctantly partners with the wealthy and arrogant ex-NASCAR driver Dino Brewster (Dominic Cooper). But just as a major sale to car broker Julia Maddon (Imogen Poots) looks like it will save Tobey's shop, a disastrous race allows Dino to frame Tobey for a crime he didn’t commit, and sending Tobey to prison while Dino expands his business out West. 

Two years later, Tobey is released and set on revenge — but he knows his only chance to take down his rival Dino is to defeat him in the high-stakes race known as De Leon — the Super Bowl of underground racing. However to get there in time, Tobey will have to run a high-octane, action-packed gauntlet that includes dodging pursuing cops coast-to-coast as well as contending with a dangerous bounty Dino has put out on his car. With the help of his loyal crew and the surprisingly resourceful Julia, Tobey defies odds at every turn and proves that even in the flashy world of exotic supercars, the underdog can still finish first.

Need For Speed features Aaron Paul, Dominic Cooper, Imogen Poots, Ramon Rodriguez, Rami Malek, Scott Mescudi, Dakota Johnson, Harrison Gilbertson, and Michael Keaton. The film is directed by Scott Waugh.

 

Need For Speed arrives March 14th, 2014.

Man I believe Aaron Paul has decent acting chops but this just seems like a fast and furious rip off, even though fast and furious franchise blows as is.  Id like to see Aaron Paul in a decent flick, maybe even a Marvel appearance???????

I guess this movie can tide us over until the real Fast n Furious comes out.

I just don't like Aaron Paul. I don't know if it's the stigma of playing Jesse Pinkman or just that I don't buy him as any type of badass. Yeah I know you don't have to be physically imposing to be a great driver but I can't see him as the alpha male type

Having said that I'm sure I'll see the movie regardless

 This looks like it could be fun.
