Back in June we mentioned that a Speed Racer-inspired movie was in the works. Now, thanks to Jalopnik, we have the first screenshots from the upcoming film. To call the Wachowski Brothers’ take on the anime classic “live action” would be a stretch, given all the apparent computer animation going on. Let’s hope it’s a little bit more comprehensible than the brothers’ Matrix trilogy and a little bit less of a nostalgia exploiting money-grab than the VW commercial. The movie is scheduled to open May 9, 2008.
UPDATE: See the trailer here.
