One of the scenes in the new Need for Speed film, featuring a McLaren P1, is being shot next week in Columbus, Georgia area. Details known so far is that the Dreamworks production is being directed by Scott Waugh, who has contributed to other films like XxX and Torque.
The scene which is being filmed at the Chattahoochee River is said to feature a crash, which is why the bridge on the stretch of road has had to be closed. Other cities that will feature in the film include Rome and Macon, with additional filming having already taking place. All of this and I never even knew that were was a NFS film until writing this article.
Expect the film to arrive in theatres February 7th 2014.
