Along with Cooper's casting, Need for Speed also got a quick plot description:
Story follows an underground race car driver (Aaron Paul) who owns a garage that modifies expensive cars to make them faster for racing. Framed and sent to prison when his best friend is murdered during a race, he seeks revenge upon his release.
Um...I'm sure there is a Need for Speed story expert out there who can tell me if this is faithful to the games or not. Until then, I'll just assume this is like Fast Five with less greasy, musclebound bald dudes.
