Behold! The Mach 5!


The film, Silver says, will have a “retro future” look and will center on Speed (Emile Hirsch) trying to make a name for himself in the racing world despite the efforts of corporate giants to foil his career. The film also stars Christina Ricci as girlfriend Trixie and Matthew Fox as Speed’s older brother, Racer X.

I was really concerned the Wachowski’s would be taking a hatchet to the popular characters, but after looking at this beautifully crafted racer, and learning Chim Chim won’t be computer generated, my fears just took a step back.

  1. Matthew Peterson on

    No, Steve…

    “…Matthew Fox as Racer X (secretly Speed’s elder brother Rex!)”

    Respect the classics. :)

  2. I like Christina Ricci, but isn’t she a little old to be playing Trixie? I don’t just mean for the role, I mean for her career as well? I guess $$$ talks.
