The long awaited film version of Speed Racer, directed by The Wachowski Brothers (The Matrix trilogy), will finally get underway in May, after months of pre-production. It's a good thing, too, because they've already got a release date of May 23, 2008, so they better get on it.
The hot rumor is that Vince Vaughn will be starring as Racer X in the film, which is actually pretty cool. We here at TheFeed certainly hope that they treat the Speed with the reverence it deserves, and don't desecrate it by making a mockery of the whole thing.
Or by casting Keanu Reeves.
