Need for Speed the movie coming May 14, 2014

Yep, the famous Need for Speed franchise, normally known for creating awesome computer and console games, is working on a movie. And it seems some very exciting supercars will appear in it, including the new McLaren P1, a Koenigsegg Agera, a Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, and a Lamborghini Sesto Elemento.

Little is known about the movie so far, other than it will include lots of very cool cars. It’s understood the plot will follow the life of a young racer who has just been released from jail, and then takes part in a country-wide race including various high-end cars.

As you can see in these snap shots, which were taken during filming of a few of the scenes, the set looks as though it will feature all of the usual ‘obstacles’ that are found in the computer games, such as the obligatory truck carrying a load of logs.

We’re sure there will be more than a fair share of police chase scenes as well, and a little subsequent carnage to go with it.

We’ll remind you the next iteration of Fast and Furious, Fast and Furious 6, is just around the corner now. It hits cinemas on May 24.
