I hate video game movies.
Dreamworks to Attempt a Need for Speed Movie
Movies based on story driven games do not work, so how can they make a film out of a racing game and expect it to be good. Unless the need for speed series has an amazing story that no one ever talks about. They have decent writers, but I cannot really see anything coming of this. The only good racing movie I have ever seen was Fast Five and I am completely convinced that, Fast Five being good was a miracle.
This movie will be great, provided it gets to release, because things don't have to be good to have value. I don't need quality storytelling in an action movie. They have the creative staff to make a movie I can watch without thinking about it & simply enjoy ridiculous stunts. The value of that should not be underestimated.
Dreamworks makes movies that are not animated? Or will this be animated as well.
Steven Spielberg movies are DreamWorks, so Saving Private Ryan is DreamWorks.
So what you are effectively saying is that steven spielberg will direct the new Need For Speed movie? That will surely make it too big to fail. I can't wait to see Razor Callahan use a juiced up Honda Civic as a landing craft to fight germans off the coast of Normandy.
I know it's 2012 and not 2001, but a stupid, ridiculous car movie is NOT COMPLETE without fucking millions of pointless Nu Metal tracks.
If they replace them with anything, they have failed.
I would prefer it if they can get some big beat era stuff, like Fluke, Leftfield and Prodigy, circa 1997-99 because that stuff is actually good for real, and also used to be in these kinds of movies.
