"Need for Speed is a story of revenge and redemption," director Scott Waugh says during the opening of the latest behind-the-scenes vignette. Indeed, the Need for Speed movie is a story about cars, outrageous stunts, and driving really fast. But the film also looks to keep the promise of "being extremely faithful to the spirit of the video game franchise" by featuring police chases, in the vein of Most Wanted.

Waugh adds, "This is a definitely a departure from what we've all known [star Aaron Paul] as Jessie from Breaking Bad." Whether that ends up being a good thing or not remains to be seen.

Check out the behind-the-scenes video below. The Need for Speed movie opens in theaters on March 14.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

      1. This will be shit because it's a movie based off of a video game

      2. We already have an established franchise called fast an furious

      3. According to IMDB, the last movie that Scott Waugh directed was Act of Valor. A terrible move.

      I got the need for speedy erasing of that trailer from my mind.

      What a waste of money and time.
