"Speed Racer" Nabs a Racer X

by | April 20, 2007 | Comments

By now you’ve probably heard that Christina Ricci has joined the "Speed Racer" cast, but it looks like Fox and the Wachowski Brothers have found their "Racer X" villain. Fans of the TV series "Lost" will no doubt applaud the signing of…

Matthew Fox as the "Speed Racer" baddie. (Movie fans will recognize Fox from his appearances in "We Are Marshall" and "Smokin’ Aces.") Sources indicate that Mr. Fox will do the movie while on his summer break from "Lost." Additionally, Australian actor Kick Gurry is in talks to play a hippie mechanic named "Sparky."

Fox and Gurry join a cast that includes Ricci, Emile Hirsch, Susan Sarandon, and John Goodman. "Speed Racer" should be hitting theaters next summer.
