Speed Racer Starts Shooting in May


The Wachowski brothers are returning to Studio Babelsberg to shoot Speed Racer, the high-octane action film based on the classic 1960 Japanese anime.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Warner Bros. production is currently preparing and plans to shoot at the German studio in May.

Andy and Larry Wachowski picked Babelsberg for James McTeigue’s V For Vendetta, which the brothers produced and co-wrote.

In addition to Speed Racer, Babelsberg has snagged another big Hollywood production: The Bourne Ultimatum. The film shot four days at the studio in January.
