The first trailer for the upcoming Need for Speed movie from DreamWorks
Fresh from prison, a street racer who was framed by a wealthy business associate joins a cross country race with revenge in mind. His ex-partner, learning of the plan, places a massive bounty on his head as the race begins.
“They took everything from me. I do not fear, for you are with me,” Paul says in the trailer (below). “All those who defied me shall be ashamed and disgraced. Those who wage war against me shall perish. I will find strength, find guidance, and I will triumph.”
The Need for Speed movie will be released in theaters on March 14, 2014. It tells the story of a street racer (Paul) who teams up with an arrogant associate (Captain America‘s Dominic Cooper) only to find himself framed and sent to prison. After leaving the clink, he joins a New York-to-Los Angeles race to score revenge.

Directing the Need for Speed film is Scott Waugh, who is best known for helming Act of Valor, a military movie starring active-duty US Navy SEALs. Possibly more relevant to the Need for Speed project is Waugh’s experience on stunt crews for dozens of films, including Torque, The Italian Job, and Biker Boyz.
Waugh will be filming a screenplay penned by George Gatins, the executive producer of DreamWorks’ 2010 comedy She’s Out of My League. Gatins developed the Need for Speed film’s story with his brother John, who is producing the film and also wrote the scripts for Real Steel and Flight.
