The lights are on
At this point, it really doesn't matter which human actors appear in the film adaptation of EA's Need for Speed series. The inclusion of a $1.3 million McLaren P1 is sure to steal the show. An image snapped on the set and posted by CarScoops confirms the exotic automobile's inclusion. Other vehicles captured on film include a Porsche Cayenne, Ford Mustang, and a Bugatti Veyron.
The Need for Speed movie is slated to arrive on March 14, 2014, from DreamWorks. Let's just hope the film is half as good as 2012's Need for Speed: Most Wanted and 2010's Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit. Both were developed by Burnout veterans Criterion, and are worth the time of anyone even remotely interested in racing titles.
Head on over to CarScoops for the set pictures.

It's DreamWorks, so hopefully that amounts the quality of this movie to something, but just the first hint of a video game movie already spurs poor judgement, which is then proven by the final product, so you can't blame us for doing so, hopefully we can finally give video game movies some justice, the Prince of Persia was the closest we've ever gotten to making a great video game movie, but to me it came up a little short, but no doubt the best effort :P
Cool cars, dumb idea for a movie.
Awesome car, but a Need for Speed movie sounds like a dumb idea.
wats next need for speed elderly most wanted movie lol
Oh, this is pretty cool. I didn't expect it to have that one.
Hmm, I see...
Very sweet car. But for that price tag, I'd rather buy a Cessna Caravan.
Nice, but I doubt that it can save the movie. After all, if fast, sweet looking cars did that, then Fast 5 would've gotten an Oscar. . .
cool cars! but... a movie?
I disagree,, both games feel watered down and to much burn out and not enough nfs elements.
Good news Dreamworks: With the amount of money the movie makes, you can pay off half the car!
