This is the first I've heard of it.

Vince Vaughn as Racer X. Pretty cool.. I only hope this is a more serious film rather than another spoof. Vaughn has the ability to go either way IMO.

Anyone have any more information?

I heard they were trying to do this years ago. Ironically, I was thinking of this when I was watching an episode a week ot so ago. And now this news pops up. Hopefully they will be faithful to the source.

Wonder what the Japanese think? The names of the characters and the race team are really Japanese names (that's why there is a G on Speed's shirt, because his name is Go (sp?) in Japanese). The M on the car stands for Matsuo Motors, or something like that, not Mach as everyone thinks. I hope they incorrporate some of that in the new film.

I think I hear it on Access Hollywood, that the idea of the film is to deal more with the "family" and not the car race aspects.

Wasn't the car races and adventures one of the best things about the original Speed Racer cartoon series?

And if they are going to make this, please don't change the car designs of the Mach 5 or Racer X's car. This is what is the best thing about the cartoon. The car is and has always been the star of the series. When they changed the Speed Racer car designs in the 1990's version of Speed Racer, it sucked and that series didn't last long. Don't change the car, please...
