    As any good fan of Speed Racer knows, the live action movie directed by the Watchowski Bros, is coming out in the summer of 2008. The movie so far has cast: Emile Hirsch (Speed), John Goodman (Pops), Susan Sharadon (Mom) and Christina Ricci (Trixie). What are your ideas on this new movie?

    Do you have any basic proof about this "movie" coming in soon?

    I've known about the movie since it was first proposed by Vince Vaughn, but he dropped it. It was later picked up about last year by the Wachowski Brothers and Warner Bro Studios. Also Matthew Fox has signed on to play Racer X (Rex Racer) and negotiations are in place to add Kick Gurry as Sparky. It is supposed to release May 9, 2008.
