This Thursday evening, DreamWorks Pictures’ Need for Speed races into theaters, bringing to the big screen the high-octane world of the hit Electronic Arts video game franchise with a cast that includes Aaron Paul, Imogen Poots, Dominic Cooper, Ramon Rodriguez, Rami Malek, Harrison Gilbertson, Scott ‘Kid Cudi’ Mescudi, Michael Keaton and Dakota Johnson. What’s more, it has Act of Valor‘s stuntman-turned-director Scott Waugh at the helm and he’s very clear that CGI stunts have absolutely no place in Need for Speed.
Paul stars as Tobey Marshall, a born-to-race mechanic who winds up losing more than he ever thought possible to the villainous Dino Brewster (Cooper). Framed for a manslaughter charge, Marshall is sent to prison to plot his revenge. His plan will ultimately take him on a high-speed cross-country adventure with justice against Dino the only finish line.
ComingSoon.net sat down with Paul, Poots, Malek, Rodriguez, Mescui, Waugh and stunt coordinator Lance Gilbert along with a few of the film’s automotive stars. Check out the interviews in the player below and catch Need for Speed in theaters March 14.
