See that. What I did with that headline? I used a racing pun to illustrate that Electronic Arts (EA) is looking to make a movie based on their popular Need For Speed video game franchise. That’s called “gold”, people. Recognize!
The Fast and the Furious franchise has mad a lot of money for Universal and the other studios want to capitalize on that. So, instead of just creating something original, Warner Brothers, Sony and Paramount are fighting over who will get to make Need for Speed. Right now it looks like Paramount is going to win the day with a low seven figure deal.
EA has tapped George and John Gatins (Real Steel) to write the script, with John producing alongside EA.
I haven’t played any of these games in years. Are they still any good?
