Team Behind ACT OF VALOR to Reunite for Underground Racing Film HIGH SPEED

     February 16, 2012


After taking on an action drama with Act of Valor, the production team Bandito Brothers is now set to tackle underground racing. Deadline reports that Scott Waugh, who co-directed Act of Valor, will helm High Speed. The “gritty, stylized car chase film” centers around high-speed pursuit drivers who are “assembled as a unit to stop an elusive, high-end underground racing circuit hellbent on running deadly point-to-point races through major American Cities.” Greg Russo is writing the script, but production isn’t expected to begin until 2013.

High Speed will be financed and entirely self-generated, just as the team did with Act of Valor. I haven’t seen the action drama yet, but given that the trailers feel like Call of Duty: The Movie, I can’t help but think that High Speed may come off as a feature film adaptation of the Need for Speed video game series. No other story details are given, but the team is expected to show off a short demo reel at Cannes in order to raise financing.
