Michael Keaton feels the need, the Need For Speed…

February 6th, 2013 by Marc Comments

Looks like one of FTN’s favourite actors is set to appear in the Need For Speed movie…

Yes, Michael ‘I’m Batman’ Keaton is set to play the host of the underground race where the world’s best drivers compete. Keaton will be joining the already cast Aaron Paul and Dominic Cooper. The movie will be scripted by John and George Gatins, is to be directed by Act Of Valor co-director Scott Waugh and will tell the story of a street racer (Paul) who is set up by his partner (Cooper) and goes to prison. When he escapes he embarks on a countrywide race to get his revenge but his ex-partner will stop at nothing to get him.

Could this be the competiton the Fast & Furious movies has been lacking?

No release date as yet, but more and and when we get it gang…

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….
