Aaron Paul to Feel the Need for Speed

But do not be misled: Need for Speed is not a Top Gun sequel but rather a big-screen adaptation of a car-racing video game of the same name. No word on the plot, but we are guessing that Paul will play a man who drives very fast and meets some sort of trouble because of that fact. Maybe he'll drag a bank vault through Rio? We would watch that again!
