Dakota Johnson has joined the cast of the upcoming video game adaptation Need for Speed, Deadline reports. She’ll star opposite Aaron Paul, Imogen Poots, Dominic Cooper, Ramon Rodriguez, Rami Malek, Harrison Gilbertson, Scott ‘Kid Cudi’ Mescudi and Michael Keaton.
To be directed by Scott Waugh (Act of Valor), the film is an adaptation of EA’s popular video game franchise. The screenplay is based on the game series, but is not based on an individual game. The film adaptation will be a fast-paced, high-octane film rooted in the tradition of the great car culture films of the ’70s while being extremely faithful to the spirit of the video game franchise.
