Speed Racer!

Stop the press!

Not only a week or so ago did I post a picture of my beloved toy Mach 5.  Well, look what I just stumbled upon:

A real, live Mach 5!

It turns out the Wachowski brothers who made the Matrix trilogy are now going to do a live action Speed Racer movie.

My mind is blown.

Check out the cast:  Emile Hirsch will be Speed (good casting!), Matthew Fox as Racer X, Christina Ricci as Trixie, and Susan Sarandon and John Goodman as Mom and Pops Racer.  Chim Chim will either be a real or digital monkey.

  1. I am a huge fan of the cartoon series so I am really excited about seeing this movie. I think G. Goodman and S. Sarrandon are good choice for Mom & Pops. Did they say when the movie was gonna be released?

  2. I can see John Goodman as Pops. Not sure about Ricci’s casting. And Chim Chim should definately be digital, ala Scooby

  3. I love the real Mach 5!  My son will be so excited to hear they are making a movie.  We have checked out and seen all the originals on DVD, and he loves Speed Racer, just like I did.
