Speed Racer Goes Hollywood

"Speed Racer" is on a fast track to the big screen in an all-new, live-action feature film that will reunite the filmmaking team behind "The Matrix." Speed Racer" will be written and directed by Larry and Andy Wachowski, marking the brothers' first writing/directing collaboration since their groundbreaking "Matrix" movies.

Based on the classic series created by anime pioneer Tatsuo Yoshida, the big-screen "Speed Racer" will follow the adventures of the young race car driver Speed in his quest for glory in his thundering Mach 5. It will feature other characters that fans of the show will remember, including Speed's family and his mysterious arch-rival, Racer X. Link
