Need for Speed movie created by DreamWorks set for a 2014 release

Article by Christian Andrei, on June 25, 2012

It appears that a Need for Speed movie is on its way as EA just announced that DreamWorks Studios has acquired the feature film rights to company’s most popular video game franchise. Brothers George and John Gatins developed the original story and George wrote the feature's screenplay. As expected, the screenplay is not based on the individual game, but on Need for Speed series.

According to the official press release, the movie is set for a 2014 release and will be a fast-paced, high-octane film rooted in the tradition of the great car culture films of the 1970s. Still, the movie will remain faithful to the spirit of the video game franchise, so don’t expect a movie inspired by another successful series, Fast and Furious.

"I'm excited about getting back into the creative trenches with John and George Gatins and my partners at EA to bring to life an exhilarating script based on an epic video game that seems to have been made for the movies," said Steven Spielberg, DreamWorks Chairman. "This is a big piece of business for DreamWorks and we are grateful to Frank Gibeau, Pat O'Brien, Kevin Maher and John and George for choosing us to deliver their goods."
