Word around Hollywood is Electronic Arts is shopping a Need For Speed treatment around town, hoping to entice film-makers to create a Need for Speed movie. Wouldn't that be... something?
Variety reports that EA has hired John Gatins, writer of Real Steel, to develop a pitch for a movie based on Need for Speed. The idea is to make something like The Fast and the Furious out of the game franchise.
I'm no Hollywood development executive, but if it was my movie, I'd make sure it starred Christine Hendricks (pictured above, in the game) and I'd make sure the cars were very, very shiny. Also: Things would blow up. A lot of things.
(Can I have a million dollars, please?)
