With his Breaking Bad meth days behind him, Aaron Paul is putting the pedal to the metal with his next project -- the high-octane race/revenge saga Need for Speed -- and we have a first look at the new trailer!
In theaters March 14, 2014, Need for Speed is based on the hugely successful video game of the same name, casting Aaron as Tobey Marshall, a blue-collar mechanic and muscle-car street racer who finds himself behind bars for a crime he didn’t commit. Two years later, Tobey is released and set on revenge, looking to enact his plan during the high-stakes De Leon, aka the Super Bowl of underground racing, complete with insane, super-charged cars and an intense gauntlet of cops in pursuit, not to mention a target on his back with a bounty on taking his car out of the race by any means necessary.
Could Need for Speed give the Fast & Furious franchise a run for their money? Directed by Scott Waugh (Act of Valor), the film co-stars Dominic Cooper, Imogen Poots, Ramon Rodriguez, Rami Malek, Scott Mescudi, Dakota Johnson, Harrison Gilbertson and Michael Keaton.
