After Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad) and Imogen Poots (28 Days Later) signed on for the Need for Speed adaptation, it looks like Dominic Cooper (Captain America: The First Avenger) will be the next addition.  Cooper is reportedly in negotiations to star opposite Paul as the other male lead in the DreamWorks picture.  Scott Waugh (Act of Valor) will direct the Electronic Arts video game from a script by George Gatins, who developed the story with John Gatins (Flight). The story centers on an underground racecar driver (Paul) who owns and operates a garage that modifies expensive cars.  Wrongly convicted but recently released from prison, he's out for revenge on whoever framed him and killed his best friend.  Variety reports that Cooper will play Dino, an ex-nascar driver who sets up a business suping up high-performance vehicles with the help of his wealthy connections.  Poots will play an exotic car dealer who does business with the duo. »
