If one still want to know more about the live action movie "Speed Racer" before heading up to the theater this weekend, a video interview with the film's four leading actors has been posted on the net. In the special footage which runs for nearly 9 minutes, it can be seen Emile Hirsch, Christina Ricci, Matthew Fox and Susan Sarandon sitting down to discuss the Wachowski brothers' film.
The interview provided by IGN exposes what the four thesps had in mind about the movie, which is safe to say that except from Hirsch, the others had no clue about it. Still, all of them seem to agree on one thing, that is the alluring offers to work with Larry and Andy Wachowski. Aside from that, they also discuss about the challenges working on the set which mostly consist of green screen, the need to use their imagination throughout the whole filming process and their impression on their own characters. Additionally, the video which can be watched below also shows many action footages from the film, including the high speed race.
Adapted from a Japanese anime series by Tatsuo Yoshida, "Racer" follows the story of Speed, a young talented speed car racer put up in a mission to save his family business from the manipulative Royalton Industries owner. Though still haunted by the memory of his idolized late brother, Speed is now faced with the fact that he has to win a death-defying, cross-country rally The Crucible which has claimed his brother's life. Coming from the filmmakers of "The Matrix" trilogy and shot in a high definition video to give more edge to the live action movie, this film will come thundering into the silver screen on May 9.
