Okay, we knew when The Wachowski Brothers were interested in make a family film, but we didn’t expect this. According to producer Joel Silver, the big screen adaptation of Speed Racer is being targeted for a G-Rating! How can they have any exciting car sequences at that level? Doesn’t intense action fall under PG? How can a car chase sequence be exciting without the threat of injury or violence?
Silver also confirmed to IESB that The Mach 5 car would be created completely with computer graphics. This adds to our previous report that the film might be filmed entirely on green screen (ala Sin City).
I was all for this film when it was announced, but the more and more I hear about it, the more and more my interest drops into the wayside.
