It has been reported that Captain America: The First Avenger actor Dominic Cooper is in talks to join the cast of the Need for Speed movie. It is claimed that Dominic is set to play one of the male leads in the DreamWorks picture alongside Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul.
It was revealed last month that Aaron Paul would be one of the male leads in the Need for Speed movie and last week it was reported that Imogen Poots would be starring as the female lead. Now, Dominic Cooper is joining the cast, as they get closer to shooting the movie.
The Need for Speed movie is based on the popular video game and is set to centre around an underground racing driver who modifies expensive cars. The screenplay for the big screen adaptation is being written by George Gatins and it is set to be directed by Scott Waugh.
Aaron Paul is reported to be playing the underground racing driver who modifies expensive cars, while Dominic Cooper is set to play an ex NASCAR driver who also modifies high performance cars. Meanwhile, Imogen Poots will play an exotic car dealer, who will be the love interest of the drivers.
Need for Speed is expected to be released on February 7, 2014.
