Directed by Gary Fleder.
A former DEA agent moves his family to a quiet town, where he soon tangles with a local meth druglord.
Right, I’m just going to put this out there: Jason Statham is definitely a cyborg robot brick wall of a human being. I mean how else can a man come out of a car flipping over about 5 times without even a scratch or sign of fluster on his face. Sounds logical right? Well, I guess that’s just Jason Statham for you and the logic of what only can be described as a modern cinematic triumph. Not kidding. Just look at that glistening American flag shining upon his undeniably British back. Beautiful if you ask me.

Why should computers have all the fun?
When it came time to bring the uber-popular video game franchise "Need for Speed" -- about a framed street racer (Aaron Paul) hellbent on revenge -- to the big screen, director Scott Waugh ("Act of Valor") was adamant that all of the stunts be "practical," meaning the actors and stuntmen would be tackling all the driving, with little-to-no CGI intervention.
"Audiences know when things are fake," Waugh told Moviefone last month, after screening roughly 20 minutes of footage from the movie. "They know when they're being lied to."
In addition to wanting to give moviegoers an authentic experience, Waugh, who is a third-generation stuntman, maintains a philosophy that not only makes for a grittier, more grounded movie experience, but lends more realism to the story and its characters. "There's a rule I have here in my company, that you can't break physics," Waugh explained. »

A new trailer for Need for Speed has premiered online.
The film follows street racer Tobey Marshall (Aaron Paul), who is hell-bent on settling the score after serving time in prison for a crime he didn't commit.
Marshall sets out to take revenge on the ex-nascar driver (Dominic Cooper) who framed him for manslaughter.
Need for Speed will open in cinemas on March 14, 2014. »
When the Breaking Bad series finale aired back in September, Aaron Paul's Jesse Pinkman was seeing driving off into the sunset, escaping the madness to start a new life. Those final scenes turn out to be a perfect segue into the actor's upcoming film Need for Speed, DreamWorks' adaptation of the popular Electronic Arts video game franchise, which hits theaters on March 14, 2014.
Last month, I was invited down to the Bandito Brothers facility in Los Angeles for an edit bay visit, where we saw brand new footage from this upcoming action-thriller, and had the chance to speak with Aaron Paul, director Scott Waugh, screenwriter John Gatins and producer Mark Sourian. Before we got to chat with the actor and these filmmakers, we were treated to roughly a half hour of new footage, »
The trailer for "Need for Speed" has finally dropped, and it shows some pretty incredible car scenes. From huge crashes to massive jumps to a helicopter carrying a car off a cliff, the new DreamWorks movie is something that strives to only show the best of the best of car films.
This is "Breaking Bad" star Aaron Paul's first big screen role since his time with Jesse Pinkman came to an end back in September. If viewers couldn't already tell from the trailer, the role of Tobey Marshall in "Need for Speed" is going to be a far cry from the troubled drug dealer on the AMC hit series.
"They're such polar opposite people. I think the moment Tobey Marshall comes on screen they're not going to see -- or hopefully they don't see -- Jesse Pinkman," Paul tells Zap2it during a group interview while promoting the film. »
DreamWorks has released a new full-length trailer and some high-resolution images for the upcoming Need for Speed movie. Directed by Scott Waugh (Act of Valor), the film chronicles a cross-country race against time as a blue-collar mechanic (Aaron Paul) who was framed for manslaughter by a wealthy, arrogant ex-nascar driver (Dominic Cooper) sets out for revenge in a high-stakes underground racing tournament. This new trailer plays up the revenge angle while also highlighting some genuinely thrilling race sequences, but I’m interested to see how much humor is layered throughout the film. One of the keys to the success of the Fast & Furious franchise is that it’s fun and has increasingly embraced its outlandishness. Waugh seems to be taking a more dramatic approach to racing in Need for Speed, but as we’ve seen on Breaking Bad, Paul certainly has comedic chops; hopefully some of that has the chance to shine through. »

We’ve previously brought you a rather operatic teaser trailer for Act Of Valor director Scott Waugh’s adaptation of video game Need For Speed, now we have the first full length trailer. The film marks Breaking Bad’ beloved “Bitch” bellowing sidekick Aaron Paul’s first post-series film role and arguably his first leading. Check out the trailer just below this official synopsis to see if the film is worth making a theatrical pitstop… or just keep driving on by.
With revenge at the forefront of his mind, he gears up for the ultimate cross-country race heaving with adrenaline-charged muscle machines and high-octane super cars. When his powerful rival (Dominic Cooper – The Devil’s Double) places a massive bounty on his head, the »

"We'll settle this behind the wheel." While the teaser trailer for DreamWorks' adaptation of the video game Need for Speed mostly focuses on beautiful visuals paired with some haunting but gorgeous music, the fill trailer dives into the story and the dialogue. Unfortunately, that means we get to see what will likely be the weakness of this action thriller. Almost every line of dialogue coming from Aaron Paul sounds melodramatic and cheesy, but maybe that's the point. At least the racing sequences look awesome, and the photography on display continues to look stunning. Let's hope this offers more than the eye candy though. Here's the full trailer for Scott Waugh's Need for Speed, originally from the film's YouTube channel: Need for Speed is directed by stuntman turned director Scott Waugh (Act of Valor) and written by George Nolfi (The Bourne Ultimatum), John Gatins (Real Steel) and producer George Gatins. »

To start creating buzz for the upcoming DreamWorks action flick Need for Speed, opening in theaters on March 14, 2014, Collider was invited, along with a handful of other online outlets, out to the Bandito Brothers headquarters to check out about 20 minutes of the film and then chat with actor Aaron Paul, director Scott Waugh, producer/writer John Gatins and producer Mark Sourian. Based on the video game series, the story chronicles a near-impossible cross-country journey that begins as a mission for revenge, but ultimately proves to be one of redemption. The thing that instantly became clear from the footage we saw was that not only are the stunts incredibly mind-blowing and awesome – with car races, car flips, cars crashing and bursting into flames, and even a car driving off a cliff and being pulled away by a helicopter – but they were also all practically done, in camera and for real.

"Hey, if this acting shit doesn.t work out for you, you could be a stunt man." That's not exactly advice an actor wants to hear from his director when first stepping on to the set for his new movie, but coming from Scott Waugh, it's probably a compliment. A third-generation-stuntman who became a director with last year's Act of Valor, Waugh knows his way around a stunt better than just about anyone, which makes him ballsy enough to hire an actor like two-time Emmy winner Aaron Paul, strap him into a stunt car, and let him drive 120 mph on camera. The "acting shit" is still important-- Waugh compared Paul to action icon Steve McQueen multiple times-- but Need for Speed, an adaptation of the famous video game, is full of really fast cars and really big stunts. And bringing Paul in on that, as Waugh puts it, was "like »

Well, I guess it wouldn’t actually be impossible, would it? Hard, I guess, but probably not undoable. That’s what they should call the movie, by the way. “Undoable”. Since, you know, they haven’t come up with a title for this movie yet. Or at least, one they’re willing to share with the rest of the world. In any case, “Act of Valor” and “Need for Speed” director Scott Waugh has signed on to stay within the Dreamworks fold, and will direct the untitled heist film for the studio and producer Steve Zaillan. Written by “Con Air’s” Scott Rosenberg, the film will follow “a man who needs to pull off a seemingly impossible job and recruits his brother, who is described as being off the rails.” Waugh, of course, made his bones on “Act of Valor”, the film that starred real-life and active-duty Navy SEALs, which accounts for its totally badass, »
