Christina Ricci, who plays Trixie, Speed’s loyal and ultra cool girlfriend in Speed Racer, is excited about the possibility of a sequel to the Warner Bros. film and working again with the groundbreaking Wachowski Brothers.
ComingSoon.net/Superhero Hype! talked to the star at the Long Beach Grand Prix recently about what she would like to see her character do the next time around.
“I would like her to do more action-y things because I had fun being out there. That was fun stuff,” she told us.
Ricci raved about working with the brothers and laughed about how the cast begged them to start working on another “Speed Racer” movie as soon as they wrapped.
“Larry and Andy created a world that they love and created characters that they loved and are attached to. When we were all leaving, we were like ‘write the sequel!’ ‘We want to come back’. And they were like, ‘I know. I know. We’re going to. Don’t worry’. They were as sad for it to be over as we were.”
When asked if she thought the Wachowskis would jump right back into another film she excitedly told us yes!
“Yeah, definitely. Yes, that’s definitely the impression I got.”
As far as how many sequels she’s signed on for, Ricci was rather coy about that.
“I don’t know. You don’t have to sign up for them. It’s more like if this movie does well, they’ll make another one. But, I’m not really sure. I don’t pay attention to that stuff.”
