TVGB: "EA and DreamWorks have just announced that the latter has picked up the rights to do a flick based on former's popular racing franchise."
Let's hope they use the legendary actors they used for the games cut scenes /s
Fast and the Furious clone.....I hope not.
It'll take Fast and the Furious spot as they're suppose to be more like heist films now.
Uh oh. Say goodbye to another franchise because of the mov- wait. To be honest, Need for Speed has been sucking since it arrived to the next generation of consoles. Minus Hot Pursuit that is.
so Fast & Furious then?
This can't be good. On any level.
Has cheese written all over it.
I think it'll be at least as good as the twilight movies.... (sarcasm)
I love cars so if they get some great cars in the movie, I will watch it :)
Haha....maybe they can even hire Uwe Boll to direct it! It would be perfect for my own personal renditions of MST3000! ;)
Thank god they already got the director from Act of Valor.....Uwe Boll should just be blacklisted.....
This is already the most unnecessary movie of 2014. I guess EA wanted the award early.
Hmm,How bad could it be? http://www.gtspirit.com/wp-...
Yes, let's wait and see.
EA would have more advantages using the movie budget as toilet paper......
Game to Movie adaptions aren't alway's that great.
Correction! They are NEVER great.
Silent hill was a great movie. Resident Evil 1 was a great movie. It all depends on the director and the story line of the game. I have a feeling this movie will bomb, but we'll see. I hate how we don't get movies for the games we WANT to be movies. Starting to get sick of that. I want a Halo or Gears movie. Hell, Uncharted would make a damn good movie series too!
A poor man's version of Fast and Furious? *shivers*
Wonder if this happened due to the increased popularity of Fast and Furious coming back? This series, if done right, could take its place. Hopefully it has more focus on cars and street racing and not stupid stories surrounding it. They have an interesting crew making it, plus EA is producing it. I just wonder why this game, EA has so many to choose from.....
@Soldierone: I would reply to your quote to me earlier but for some reason I'm getting errors trying to reply. I totally agree. Uwe Boll should be blacklisted! I was just making a joke that I predict this movie not doing so well so having him direct it would just 100% guarantee my predictions, lol. :) But, on a serious note, here's to hoping it's a good movie.
knew this was coming is vin diesel in it?
Movie Pass Required!
FAST & FURIOUS all the way OT: like to see cars from underground if this movie is true with little Jon an Eastside boys singing "GET LO"
If it was loosely based on "the Run" It might actually be interesting. If it is a pretty-boy/girl fest with cars that these "people" could never afford to own, everyone is talking in some sort of "cool-talk" that the producers think that a certain demographic will "respond" to favourably. It will be a waste of time and no polishing will make that turd shine.
Hasnt the numerous Fast and Furious films covered this type of film?
Does anyone actually think this is a good idea? NFS is a name, nothing more. For a game it works, but a movie? Any car movie could be called NFS.
Where is my Need for Speed Underground 3, EA? I still don't get how they never made a sequel to NFS Underground with cops. Wouldn't cops fit better in the Underground street racing setting more than those luxury car races?
no thx EA im gonna wait fast and furious
This movie based on a game will be just as good as those games based on a movie...
This will be a turd.
All the fortune tellers in here. If they announced on here a movie was being made off a theme park attraction what would you have thought? Dumb, but hey I guess Pirates of the Caribbean did pretty well especially when no one was on on the pirate movie idea wagon. Story won't be original (how many are really?)but if they have nice cars(given) atmosphere and best of all decent actors (Nicholas Cage in another car movie) then it shouldn't be that bad. But what can be expected from the harsh movie critics of today.
The true question is who's that chick in the pic?
Doesnt another F&F movie come out next year as well? eitherway this will bomb, most movies of this nature do, F&F holds the crown for better or worse.
I mean how hard is it tom make a movie about cars? And in this case we don't even need actors that look like characters in the game ( unless they want actors that looks like cars xD). If done properly it can be atleast as good as fast and furious or gone in 60 seconds.
oh my god
Yeeeeah, no thanks EA.
Straight to BR/DVD in 5, 4, 3, 2....
