Filming for 'Need for Speed' Headed for Macon

Filming for another major Hollywood film is reportedly headed for Macon.

An Atlanta- and LA-based casting company, Tammy Smith Casting, is putting out the call for "Need for Speed," an action film based on the popular video game series.

Tammy Smith's website says they're looking for precision drivers for filming in the Atlanta and Macon areas.

Filming takes place between April 23 and the end of June, the company say.

The film starts Aaron Paul, Imogen Poots, Michael Keaton and Dominic Cooper.

The director is Scott Waugh, who made "Act of Valor."

The casting company's ad says precision drivers could mean police or EMTs, race-car drivers, military-trained drivers or former taxi drivers. They're asking those drivers to also submit pictures of their cars.

The production company, Bandito Brothers, could not be reached for comment.
