Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul set to play lead role in Need for Speed movie


Yep! Breaking Bad co-lead Aaron Paul has signed on to the Dreamworks film adaptation of EA's Need for Speed series which is set to hit top gear in cinemas February 2014. 


Isn't he dreamy?

"We are huge fans of Aaron's and his stellar work on 'Breaking Bad.' We couldn't be more excited to have him headline our cast for 'Need for Speed,'" said Holly Bario, President of Production, DreamWorks Studios.

"Need for Speed is one of the most action-packed entertainment experiences you can find," said Patrick Soderlund, Executive Vice President, Electronic Arts. "The newest game, 'Need for Speed Most Wanted' and the upcoming film take the action to all new heights. Like the game series itself, the cast for the movie needs to be edgy and cool. Aaron Paul is a rising star -- a great choice for the film lead."

Apparently the film adaptation of Need for Speed 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 one of the biggest and most successful franchises in the video game industry, having sold more than 150 million units worldwide and generating an estimated $4 billion in revenue.

It is currently unknown if the Need for Speed movie will include any magnets.



The next game in the series, Need for Speed: Most Wanted launches on November 2nd in Europe and you can preorder today from ShopTo.

(PS Isn't Breaking Bad awesome?)

"Informed he has terminal cancer, an underachieving chemistry genius turned high school teacher uses his expertise to secretly provide for his family by producing the world's highest quality crystal meth." from IMDB. That's about the jist of it.

I've been meaning to get into breaking bad, so many people have told me it's one the best shows around atm. and on the subject of NFS movie, I'm hoping it breaks the trend, but, Movies based on video games are often terrible. so i wont be looking forward to this.

Only the worst NFS games have a story, so basing a film on that can't really end well, can it?

Well from my understanding...(of the press release) it's not based on any one game, just the series.

My point still stands, there is no real story to NFS, and when they do add one it's bad.

As long as this film is somewhat like Fast and the Furious, I'd expect it to do well. Here's hoping!
