Need For Speed Sequel Official, Will Be U.S & China Co-Production

Even though it didn’t score big at the box office, last year’s Need for Speed movie was a hit among fans of the franchise and driving enthusiasts all over the world.

We’re all for a NFS 2 movie, since we loved all the stunts they did in the first one, especially the in-car footage from that Koenigsegg Agera x 3 race.

However, the sequel will be a joint venture between China Movie Channel Program Center, Jiaflix Enterprises, 1905 Pictures and Electronic Arts – the publisher of the hit “Need for Speed” video game series.

So far there’s no script, no actors, no directors, not much of anything attached to the project, but we’ll keep a close eye on things and see if anybody gets picked up or if Aaron Paul comes back to star as Tobey Marshall.

Because of Chinese involvement, much of the movie could be filmed in China, with significant Chinese talent, not that it would matter where they film it and who the actors are as long as they can act and the stunt work remains the same.

We’re actually looking forward to seeing if a NFS sequel would up the ante on stunts, without going too far overboard into “fantasy land” like what you get in the Fast & Furious movies.

The last project that China Movie Channel, Jiaflix and 1905 Pictures worked on that was U.S based, was the high-grossing movie Transformers: Age of Extinction.
