Speed Racer movie update.

I haven't heard anything new about the Speed Racer movie the Wachowski Bros. are working on, so I'm going to just make things up and see what sticks.

I watched King Kong last night, and to get over that, I thought about how many movies Jack Black has been in; he seems to be the darling of the box office right now. So much so, that if the Wachowski's are planning to draw the crowds, they will probably have to cast him in the lead role.

Jack Black as Speed RacerGo Speed Racer...rock on.


Hugo Weaving as Racer XEveryone knows that the Wachowski brothers would be nothing without Hugo Weaving.

Hugo Weaving as Racer XNevermind that he has a completely different accent from his younger brother, Racer X will end up being the coolest thing in the movie simply because Hugo Weaving is in the mask. And the car. And the sunglasses.



Jada Pinkett-Smith as TrixieTo make the movie less...how shall I say...white, the Bros. are going to need to change things up a bit. Drawing once more from their pool of talent, the Wachowski Bros. will most likely use Jada Pinkett-Smith as the most ass-kicking Trixie ever.

With any luck, she will have a more up-to-date hairstyle. As long as she keeps the yellow bow.



With the demise of Peter Jackson's career for the time being, Andy Serkis will probably be free to bring his talents to the project as not only the youngest Racer brother, Spritle, but also as his disturbing little friend Chim-Chim.

I would actually pay to see this:
