Here’s an interesting little tidbit for those interested in the world of Hollywood video game adaptations: according to the Wall Street Journal, the Need for Speed movie cost $66 million to make. It’s the most expensive project Dreamworks has ever produced, despite appearing pretty modest next to the $200 million budget of competing action blockbusters. The film stars Breaking Bad’s Aaron Paul and opened worldwide this week. Have you read our Need for Speed movie review yet?
