Get a Behind-the-Scenes Look at the #NeedForSpeed Driving School!

As someone who can’t even parallel park, I’m always fascinated by the crazy driving that I see in action movies. I know a lot of it is done by professional stunt drivers, but not all of it. So how do the actors handle those tough tricks? They go to driving school!

Aaron Paul in Need for Speed

One of my favorite actors, Aaron Paul, recently trained to pull off some cool stunts in the upcoming movie Need for Speed. You can get a behind-the-scenes glimpse of it in this video:

About Need for Speed:

The film centers around Tobey Marshall (Aaron Paul), a blue-collar mechanic who races muscle cars on the side in an unsanctioned street-racing circuit. Struggling to keep his family-owned garage afloat, he reluctantly partners with the wealthy and arrogant ex-NASCAR driver Dino Brewster (Dominic Cooper). But just as a major sale to car broker Julia Maddon (Imogen Poots) looks like it will save Tobey’s shop, a disastrous race allows Dino to frame Tobey for a crime he didn’t commit, and sending Tobey to prison while Dino expands his business out West.

Two years later, Tobey is released and set on revenge — but he knows his only chance to take down his rival Dino is to defeat him in the high-stakes race known as De Leon — the Super Bowl of underground racing. However to get there in time, Tobey will have to run a high-octane, action-packed gauntlet that includes dodging pursuing cops coast-to-coast as well as contending with a dangerous bounty Dino has put out on his car. With the help of his loyal crew and the surprisingly resourceful Julia, Tobey defies odds at every turn and proves that even in the flashy world of exotic supercars, the underdog can still finish first.


Need for Speed hits theaters everywhere on March 14th! In the meantime, you can follow along for more updates from the movie on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram & even Tumblr or on the movie’s website.

  10. I’m married to a car guy, so there’s a pretty good chance I’ll be seeing this movie. Some of the car-guy stuff rubs off, though, because my first thought on seeing the photo of the car in the air was “Oh, no! I hope they didn’t wreck that Mustang!” LOL

  11. Wow that car is really flying. It must be exciting

  19. Ha! I’m just scared sending out 17 year old to regular driving school, I’d be a basket case trying to do those kind of stunts myself, or even watching them being done by someone else before they are ‘seasoned’ at it!
