Aaron Paul Will Star in Need For Speed!Aaron Paul Signed on To Star In “Need For Speed”



This film was initially attached to Taylor Kitsch, but this year happened and Taylor Kitsch is just no longer viable as a leading man. Battleship and John Carter were both huge box office disasters and Dreamworks quickly dropped Kitsch from the film.


So, in walks Aaron Paul. The great actor who is best known for his role as Jesse Pinkman in Breaking Bad, is stepping up to the big leagues — the lead in a feature film. And I think he may have a big film career — as long as Breaking Bad is in the collective minds of fans. He brings major street cred to this project. Look, as a twenty something in college, Need for Speed was a beloved game with a strong fan-base  My bet? Need For Speed will do a lot of what Fast and Furious did. I think this film will be gritty and set in the streets and Aaron Paul fits the bill.


Act of Valor director Scott Waugh is set to direct, and this guy knows his action. Production on Need for Speed is set to begin next year, with a story not based on any single one of the games, but inspired by the title in general. The film is set for a February 7, 2014 release.
