2 more for Speed Racer
Apr. 2, 2007
There had been a lot of rumors floating around about who'd be starring in the Wachowskis' upcoming SPEED RACER film and I don't think anyone at anytime mentioned John Goodman. But sure enough Goodman, and Susan Sarandon, have both signed on to star in the film. Goodman and Sarandon will play Pops and Mom Racer, parents of Speed. Pops built the Mach 5, the car that Speed uses to tool around the track. Still to be cast are the roles of Trixie, girlfriend of Speed and Racer X, the story's is-he-or-isn't-he villain. The Wachowskis are directing from their own script with frequent collaborator Joel Silver producing at Warner Bros. Production is expected to get underway this summer in Germany where a bulk of the production will be done over green screen.
||Will there be a Chim-Chim in the movie? If so will it be a real monkey? What about Spritle?
