Keaton joins Dominic Cooper and Aaron Paul.
The Hollywood Reporter has detailed DreamWorks' upcoming adaptation of the Electronic Arts racing game series, 'Need for Speed.' "The story tells of a local street-racer (Paul) who partners with a rich and arrogant business associate (Cooper), only to find himself framed by his colleague and sent to prison. After his stint in the joint, he joins a New York-to-Los Angeles race to get revenge. But when the ex-partner learns of the scheme, he puts a massive bounty on the racer’s head, forcing him to run a cross-country gauntlet of illegal racers in all manner of supercharged vehicles."
Keaton apparently is set to play "the reclusive and eccentric host of an underground supercar race," a role that Keeton could pull off in his sleep.
