Imogen Poots Has a Need for Speed

October 31, 2012


Need for Speed has found its female lead in Fright Night star Imogen Poots, says a story at The Hollywood Reporter. She'll appear opposite Aaron Paul in the video game adaptation, playing an up and coming racer whose father has staked everything on her success.

To be directed by Scott Waugh (Act of Valor), the film is an adaptation of EA's popular video game franchise. The screenplay is based on the game series, but is not based on an individual game. The film adaptation will be a fast-paced, high-octane film rooted in the tradition of the great car culture films of the '70s while being extremely faithful to the spirit of the video game franchise.

Need for Speed is the premier racing game in the video game industry and one of EA's best-selling video game franchises. Since the release of the first title, the series has sold more than 140 million units worldwide, generating an estimated $4 billion in retail revenue, making it one of the biggest franchises in video gaming.

Filming is scheduled to begin early next year for a February 7, 2014 release.
