May 14th, 2013 by Marc Comments

The movie adaptation of Need for Speed has begun filming in Macon, Georgia.

It is being produced by DreamWorks Studios and will star Michael Keaton alongside Aaron Paul, who plays Jesse Pinkman in Breaking Bad.

The plot features a street racer taking part in a cross-country race to get revenge on an ex-business partner, who places a contact on his head as the event begins.

Set for release in March 2014, the film is being directed by former stuntman Scott Waugh.

The film has already begun filming in Mendocino County, California.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
