Report – EA shopping Need for Speed film pitch around Hollywood

Friday, 13th April 2012 21:02 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

According to a report on The Chicago Tribune, EA is in talks with John Gatins to develop a movie pitch for “Need for Speed.” The report states Gatins and EA plan to produce the project with George Gatins writing the pitch. It is now being “shopped around Hollywood,” with Warner, Sony and Paramount all said to be interested in the film rights to the racing property, with bids expected in the low-seven figure range with Paramount the current front-runner. Plot details are being kept secret for now, but we’re wondering why the firm hasn’t enlisted the help of Michael Bay on this project.

    “Plot details are being kept secret for now”

    That’s because there is likely no plot :P

    i would like to see a “nfs the run” movie. With a story with more beef around the bone they can do something good i guess.

    You doesnt need Michael Bay to make gold of this.

    Actually, Need For Speed will be a good cinema IP in order to take some gold of that one that “Fast Furious” saga is making, as this one its close to his end, so it wont be strange to see big studios bilding for it.

    In fact, its strange that they havent shopped the rights yet.
