Recent word from IGN FilmForce indicates that the Wachowski Brothers are still attached to the big-screen rendition of the classic animation series "Speed Racer." Also rather interesting is the news that everyone’s favorite lanky funnyman, Vince Vaughn, may still be attached to the project.
From IGNFF: "IGN FilmForce recently broke the news that Matrix filmmakers Larry and Andy Wachowski were going to write and direct the live-action version of the cartoon classic Speed Racer for Warner Bros. and producer Joel Silver.
IGN FilmForce can now report, however, that Vaughn remains involved with Speed Racer and is still likely to take a supporting role in the film as well, probably as the title character’s big brother, Racer X. Sources also advised IGN that the Wachowskis are starting work on the screenplay but that the project isn’t expected to go before cameras anytime soon."
