Based on the popular EA series of video games, Need For Speed is an action film from DreamWorks Studios that features the underground world of high-stakes street racing. The film is directed by Scott Waugh (Act of Valor) and stars Aaron Paul, Imogen Poots, Michael Keaton and Dominic Cooper.
Aaron Paul portrays Tobey Marshall, wrongly imprisoned for a federal crime he's innocent of, is now back outside, but finds himself thrust back into the lucrative but highly illegal world of street racing, a "sport" in which he once excelled. Marshall is the owner of a garage which specializes in "pimping" high performance race cars, and when he learns his former close friend and partner is responsible for his imprisonment, he swears revenge. A cross-country auto race serves as the "battlefield," with plenty of high-speed racing action and spectacular crashes along the way.
Ms. Poots portrays the romantic interest, a dealer of rare and exotic cars, while Keaton plays the wealthy, reclusive mastermind behind the event.
