EA’s venerable Need For Speed franchise is apparently making the jump from the small screen to the silver screen. Worst Previews reports that EA has tapped the writers behind Real Steel – George and John Gatins – to adapt the long-running game franchise to the big screen. Three studios are supposedly lined up to grab the rights to the movie – Warner Bros, Sony and Paramount are all interested in adapting the game into a movie, which would supposedly compete with Universal’s The Fast and Furious franchise that’s set to film it’s sixth iteration later this year. Let’s just hope the result is less campy and better acted than the cut-scenes in the series, yeah?
