After starting production this spring in Northern California and spending the last two months filming in and around Atlanta, GA, Need for Speed has moved to Detroit, MI for the rest of their shoot.

The movie, starring Aaron Paul, Dominic Cooper, Michael Keaton, Rami Malek, and Imogen Poots, chronicles a cross-country journey at impossible speeds. It is based on the popular video game series of the same name, which has sold more than 140 million copies worldwide. Last week Dreamworks announced it has partnered with Ford to feature several Ford vehicles in the movie, including a customized Mustang.

The Michigan Film Office recently announced Dreamworks’ upcoming feature film Need for Speed has been approved for a film incentive from the state.

The movie, starring Aaron Paul, Dominic Cooper, and Imogen Poots chronicles a cross-country journey at impossible speeds and will be filmed in part in Detroit this summer.

“Need for Speed was initially just looking at Michigan to do car builds for the film, but we were able to make the case that this was a terrific place to film the movie as well,” said Margaret O’Riley, director of the Michigan Film Office. “This project fits so well into both our reputation as a great state for filmmaking and the automotive heritage Michigan is known for; it’s a strong investment all around.”
