Electronic Arts Feels The Need. The Need For Speed!

Need For Speed SC
Electronic Arts

One of the greatest franchises in movie history is the ‘Fast & Furious‘ franchise (sorry ‘Star Wars‘) with Vin Diesel and Paul Walker. The high octane films have generated millions, so it’s no surprise video game publisher and developer Electronic Arts is looking to enter the box office race with it’s own long-running franchise, ‘Need For Speed.’

This big news for video game nuts comes from Variety, who says that EA has approached ‘Real Steel’ writer John Gatins to help develop a pitch for a ‘Need For Speed’ movie. UTA is putting the package together to shop to studios like Warner Brothers, Sony and Paramount who would love to have their own car franchise to compete with Universal’s popular series of films, with a 6th installment expected to shoot this year.

As of right now, it’s just an inkling, but one that could be promising. After all – as a video game – the ‘Need for Speed’ title is reasonably well known, and that adds a lot value to a possible franchise-starter. We’ll keep you updated on the progress of this film. Let us know in the comments what you’d like to see in a ‘Need For Speed’ movie.*
