The new 'Need For Speed' trailer is here and provides an extended look at the upcoming adaptation of the classic video game. You can watch the trailer above and then go behind-the-scenes with us and star Aaron Paul, who took us into the film's editing room to give us a closer look at how they pulled off some of the scenes biggest stunts (spoiler alert: no CGI).
Need For Speed
Could the adaptation of the long-running racing series 'Need For Speed' be the first great movie based on a video game? We're not going to make any wild and crazy guesses, but for the sake of star Aaron Paul, we certainly hope so. The 'Breaking Bad' star is headlining the film alongside Dominic Cooper and now we have our first look at the two of them in character.
We almost didn't get a chance to speak with Dominic Cooper because he's been so busy with upcoming projects. The last time we saw this guy was in the 2012 bomb 'Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter,' which he's following up with the Colin Farrell- and Noomi Rapace-led 'Dead Man Down,' the American directorial debut of the original 'Girl with the Dragon Tattoo' helmer Niels Arden Oplev.
While Cooper was overseas in Budapest filming the TV miniseries 'Fleming,' based on the life of 007 creator Ian Fleming, we got a chance to speak with him briefly about his experience making 'Dead Man Down,' his upcoming role in the 'Need for Speed' movie, and whether or not he'd be back for 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' or another Marvel movie.
To the delight of car-racing gamers, 'Need for Speed' will be among the next phase of games getting the big-screen adaptation. The project was announced a while ago with 'Breaking Bad' star Aaron Paul attached as the lead. Aside from the already filled-out cast, 'Need for Speed' details have been scarce as of late, so we chatted briefly with Paul's co-star Dominic Cooper while he was promoting the upcoming 'Dead Man Down' to get the latest info.
