The racing action flick is based on the popular EA video game and will focus on fast 1970’s style cars.
Need For Speed is written by John George Gatins and is directed by Scott Waugh. The release date is set for Feb. 7, 2014.
In the movie, Paul plays Tobey Marshall, a central character playing a street racer who joins a race from New York to Los Angeles for revenge after the death of a friend.
Cudi will play one of Paul’s racing crew members.
The singer-songwriter is set to make his movie debut later this year in Two Night Stand, an independent romantic comedy.
