Need for Speed movie coming in 2014

The first rumors of a Need for Speed movie popped up way back in April, but today we're getting the official confirmation that a movie deal is underway between Dreamworks and EA. 

Many details about the project are still unknown, but we know that EA along with John Gatins and Mark Sourianmad will be producing the picture, while Scott Woagh will be the director. Woagh previously co-directed the critically panned Act of Valor.

They've said the film will be “a fast-paced, high-octane film rooted in the tradition of the great car culture films of the 70s." No actors have yet been announced, but we'd be pretty surprised if Vin Diesel didn't show up in there somewhere.

Time to place your bets on how many slow-motion shots of Lamborghinis busting through police barricades there will be. We're putting the over/under at 7.

    "2 Need 2 Speed" that better be the title for this movie, and I pray this movie is actually about racing and cars, not love stories and all that shit

    You guys have played NFS Hot Pursuit, right? You remember the car select screen? And what happened when you selected a car? It wouldn't just demand you pick a color for it and then launch you into the race, no... it was so brilliant. While you sat there and contemplated just what kind of sexy color to endow your probably already stupidly attractive driving machine with; a female voice would comfortably ooze through your speakers and waft its way into your ears as it would describe in such desirable tones the various features, history, quirks and performance specs of the car you've chosen as you're treated to heart-attack-inducingly sexy slow pans over all of the car's numerous curves. That was arguably one of the best parts of that game (aside from the awesome racing, of course)... whenever I got a new car in that game, I would dash through the car select just to listen to that so-close-yet-so-far-off female voice, and I listened to every single one of those voiceovers perhaps at least twice. If a NFS movie consisted almost entirely of slow pans over the curvaceous figures of the most desirable cars on Earth while a female voice provides in-depth commentary on each one's features (presumably interspersed with slo-mo shots of said cars barreling through police barricades at eye-melting speeds), I would probably see that movie more than half a dozen times in theaters. I would buy the movie on Blu-Ray the instant it comes out and watch it on my HDTV every week. Hell, I may just even go out of my way to get the largest HDTV I could find. I'd watch it in 3D even. And, as far as I've said I would go just to watch this movie, you can all assume that... yes, I may just even masturbate to it as well. There's something about that voice that came through that just got to me every single time... it was as if it was goading you to just get on with it already and get in that car and step on the gas, and the voice just made you really, really want to but at the same time it was so gripping that you wanted to stay and listen to her for awhile longer while ogling at the car's conspicuous contours... But anyway, that probably won't happen. So, NFS movie. Hell yes. Woo.
