Dominic Cooper in Need for Speed

May 13 2013, 12:11am CDT | by

Dominic Cooper is in talks to star in 'Need for Speed'.

The 'Mamma Mia!' actor is in negotiations to appear in the forthcoming motoring movie - which is based on the Electronic Arts video game of the same name - alongside Aaron Paul and Imogen Poots.

He is up for the role of Dino, a former NASCAR driver who also modifies supercars for wealthy clients.

'Breaking Bad' star Aaron plays an underground racing driver who has diversified into running a garage which modifies luxury cars to boost their power. However, he is framed for the murder of his friend - who died during a race - and after getting out of prison, swears revenge on those responsible for his pal's death and his wrongful imprisonment.

Imogen is playing an exotic car dealer who works with both Aaron and Dominic's characters.

George and John Gatins have written the script for the film, which is being directed by Scott Waugh and backed by DreamWorks.

Shooting will begin next year, with a release date of February 2014.

Dominic was last seen in 'Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter' and his next big screen outing is in action thriller 'Dead Man Down'.
