Kid Cudi joins Need for Speed movie
Hip-hop artist Scott "Kid Cudi" Mescudi joins Aaron Paul for DreamWorks' upcoming racing film; Ramon Rodriguez, Rami Malek, and Harrison Gilbertson also on board.
The Need for Speed movie has landed another high-profile actor. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Scott "Kid Cudi" Mescudi has signed on to DreamWorks' racing movie, joining Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul.
Other actors recently confirmed for roles in the Need for Speed flick include Ramon Rodriguez (Battle Los Angeles, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen), Rami Malek (Night at the Museum, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part II), and Harrison Gilbertson (Beneath Hill 60, Accidents Happen).
In addition, English actor Dominic Cooper (Captain America, Band of Brothers) will play a leading role in the film. He has been cast as Dino, an ex-Nascar driver who uses his wealthy connections to establish a car-modifying business.
Rounding out the announced cast members thus far is Imogen Poots (28 Weeks Later, Fright Night), who will reportedly play the role of an "exotic car dealer" for the film.
Directing the Need for Speed film will be Scott Waugh, who's best known for helming Act of Valor, a military movie starring active-duty US Navy SEALs. Possibly more relevant to the Need for Speed project will be Waugh's experience on stunt crews for dozens of films, including Torque, The Italian Job, and Biker Boyz.
Waugh will be filming a screenplay penned by George Gatins, the executive producer of DreamWorks' 2010 comedy She's Out of My League. Gatins developed the Need for Speed film's story with his brother John, who is producing the film and also wrote the scripts for Real Steel and Flight
