EXCLUSIVE: NEED FOR SPEED’s Race to De Leon with Aaron Paul
By Brian Walton on February 27, 2014
There are 2,942 miles between New York and San Francisco. In Need for Speed, Aaron Paul’s Tobey Marshall only has 45 hours to get to De Leon, an underground street race with the most exotic supercars in the world. It’s a good thing he has a sweet custom Mustang named Beauty, with a top speed of 230 mph, to make the trip.
We were on the NFS set in Detroit when they ripped through the Motor City, but the fun didn’t stop there. In addition to practical stunts and badass driving, the film wanted to make sure it shot as much on location as possible.
In an exclusive behind the scenes feature, take a look at where the Need for Speed production traveled to make sure this cross country road trip really saw the country. Find out what it was like chasing across the United States of ‘Murica at a break neck pace from Aaron Paul, Imogen Poots, Dominic Cooper, and director Scott Waugh.
Don’t try this at home, see it in a theater. Need for Speed is in theaters Friday, March 14th.
