20 лет Need For Speed 2

The original movie was an adaptation of the hit video game franchise starring Aaron Paul but will Need For Speed 2 ever rev up?

Will Aaron Paul rev up again for Need For Speed 2? From the very beginning, video games have been proven tough to successfully adapt into movies. The first attempt was 1993’s Super Mario Bros, which suffered through a messy production and swapped out the cheerful tone of the games for a dark, dingy Blade Runner look. The film was a flop and further duds like Street Fighter and Double Dragon followed, though 1995’s Mortal Kombat is still a b-movie gem.

The critical reputation of video game movies or TV adaptations is getting a little better, thanks to the success of Netflix’s Castlevania or Detective Pikachu. The genre has yet to produce a truly fantastic movie, however, and 2014’s Need For Speed did little to elevate the genre. Aaron Paul led the cast of this big-budget adaptation of the EA game series, with a supporting cast that included Imogen Poots, Dominic Cooper and Michael Keaton. The film’s action was a little more grounded than the Fast And Furious series, but despite some exciting car chases, it was let down by tepid drama.

The film did decent business though, so what are the odds of Need For Speed 2?

To the surprise of many, Need For Speed 2 was confirmed in 2015, which was planned to be a co-production between EA and the China Movie Channel Program Center. The plan was to make Need For Speed a major international series with the bulk of the sequel being shot in China. During a 2016 Collider interview for thriller Triple 9, Aaron Paul confirmed he’d heard rumblings about Need For Speed 2. He also revealed he didn’t know what the story would be and his involvement would be dependent on the material, but he’d be open to a return due to having a great time making the original.

It’s now been five years since Need For Speed 2 was announced, suggesting the project has gone dormant. If the series does continue at this point a reboot is more likely, as the original movie has been largely forgotten. There’s always a slim chance it could be revived but the sequel is likely dead.

It’s pronounced Paw-rick, not Pad-raig. Now that’s out of the way, a brief introduction. Padraig has been writing about film online since 2012, when a friend asked if he’d like to contribute the occasional review or feature to their site. A part-time hobby soon blossomed into a career when he discovered he really loved writing about movies, TV and video games – he even (arguably) had a little bit of talent for it. He has written words for Den of Geek, Collider, The Irish Times and Screen Rant over the years, and can discuss anything from the MCU — where Hawkeye is clearly the best character — to the most obscure cult b-movie gem, and his hot takes often require heat resistant gloves to handle. He’s super modern too, so his favorite movies include Jaws, Die Hard, The Thing, Ghostbusters and Batman. He can be found as i_Padds on Twitter making bad puns.
