Speed Racer Cast?

03.14.2007
That was just the title to get your attention, but in reality nothing's really set in stone. HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL's Zac Efron is apparently "in talks" to star in the upcoming Wachowski Brothers movie SPEED RACER as Speed Racer.

Zac was apparently given permission by Disney to leave the set where he was busy filming HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL 2: THE TRUE TEST OF YOUR DEDICATION AS A FATHER so that he could attend the call-back audtion. The movie, based on the Japanese cartoon and to be directed by the Wachowski Brothers is scheduled for a May 23rd 2008 release.

Just a RUMOR for now, but what do you all think about it?

FUCK THIS!

I will tell you what I think. High School Musical is the most overrated piece of fucking shit I have seen in years. Only 12 year old girls eat that shit up. Bad news all around.

Though I really can't say much about High School Musical (since I haven't seen it nor will I ever care to), I thought Elijah Wood would have been suitable as Speed Racer

Has potential

I think he looks a lot like Speed Racer, especially if they dye his hair black. Never seen Musical because I would rather watch stupid meaningless shit like Bridge to Terabithia than a jail-bait version of grease on crack. And dear god there's gonna be a sequel...

Live action Speed is a waste

Unless they make an attempt to make them move/speak like the cartoon and try to be funny about it....having the actors freeze in place, but moving the background...making their mouths open and close out-of-synch with the words and in kind of ventriloquist-dummy fashion...

Eh, forget it. Waste of time. Speed Racer belongs in my childhood memories.

P.S. WTF is "High School Musical"?

Actually, they may be doing just that, seeing as how they're filming the entire film in front of greenscreen ala 300/Sky Captain.

Speed!

Funny, this works. Near perfect. And having read the book Bridge to Terabithia, it is anything but "stupid meaningless shit".

Ackland

this dude should be it:

I saw him on a tele feature a couple of years ago and thought of Speed. He'd be good. But the Aussie thing might wreck it for him.

I just hope the Brothers go for someone who can act, as directing actors isn't their strong point. And without a background for the actors to bounce off (a la green screen) this could be one fo the most soulless pieces of dog poo poo ever.
