According to Entertainment Weekly, actor Aaron Paul, best known for portraying Jesse Pinkman in Breaking Bad, will feature in the upcoming movie adaptation of Need for Speed.
Specifically, Paul will take the lead role in the racing flick, which will be directed by Scott Waugh for DreamWorks.
The Need for Speed film is scheduled to begin shooting in early 2013, and is pencilled in for release on February 7, 2014.
While based on the critically-acclaimed racing videogame series, the movie won’t take inspiration from one particular game. Writing duo George and John Gatins will be penning the film’s story.
The next entry in the Need for Speed franchise, Most Wanted, is due out on PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, PC and Xbox 360 on October 30, 2012.
