Coming to fill in the blank in "Speed Racer", Christina Ricci has delightfully given her agreement to assume the role of the titular's character girlfriend Trixie, Warner Bros. Pictures' President of Production Jeff Robinov has officially announced.

"Christina Ricci is a young actress of extraordinary range, who has become a favorite of both critics and audiences in a wide variety of movies, from mainstream features to acclaimed indie films," Robinov commented. "She is an amazing talent and we think she is going to do a great job with the role of Trixie."
