That’s right folks. Rumors are flying around that the critically acclaimed game Need For Speed The Run is going to be made into a film. This latest version from the Electronic Arts Need For Speed franchise already has all the makings of a Hollywood blockbuster with an in depth storyline and loads of action. In the game you play as Jack Rourke, a man who’s made one too many enemies in his life. The game tells the story of Rourke’s efforts to win a race from San Francisco to New York in order to claim a prize of $25 million and pay off the mob bounty on his head. And the word is DreamWorks is actually involved in the deal. We’ll just wait and see if a deal actually goes through in the upcoming days.
If you haven’t played the game, you really should. The Need For Speed franchise so happens to be the most successful racing game franchise… ever. Our personal favorite happens to be Need For Speed: Porsche Unleashed. And while you wait for confirmation, check out the teaser video for Need For Speed The Run below.
