The Need for Speed movie has come into focus. A Variety report reveals the film's plot, claiming it will be centered on high-speed cars but will also touch on prison and murder.

The film's story will reportedly follow an underground racecar driver (played by Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul), who owns a garage. This character is framed for the murder of his best friend during a race and is sent to prison. When he gets out, he seeks revenge.

In addition to exposing the Need for Speed movie's plot, Variety revealed that English actor Dominic Cooper (Captain America, Band of Brothers) will play a leading role in the film. He has been cast as Dino, an ex-Nascar driver who uses his wealthy connections to establish a car-modifying business.

In addition, Imogen Poots (28 Weeks Later, Fright Night) is reportedly being considered for the role of an "exotic car dealer" for the film.

The Need for Speed movie is in production at DreamWorks (Shrek, Kung Fu Panda) and is due to theaters on February 7, 2014.
