Need For Speed Portions filmed in Moab and Utah City IN AN EXCITING RETURN TO THE GREAT CAR CULTURE films of the 1960s and ’70s that tap into what makes the American myth of the open road so enticing, Need for Speed chronicles a near-impossible cross-country race against time—one that begins as a mission for revenge, but proves to be one of redemption. Produced by DreamWorks Pictures, the movie is based on the hugely popular videogame series by game maker Electronic Arts, which has sold more than 140 million copies worldwide. The film centers around Tobey Marshall (Aaron Paul, Emmy- winning actor who played Jesse Pinkman in AMC’s Breaking Bad), a blue-collar mechanic who races muscle cars on the side in an unsanctioned street-racing circuit. Struggling to keep his family-owned garage afloat, he reluctantly partners with the wealthy and arrogant ex-NASCAR driver Dino Brewster (Dominic The movie will be, “Rooted in the car culture tradition while being extremely faithful to the spirit of the video game franchise." DreamWorks 11 Cooper). But just as a major sale to car broker Julia Bonet (Imogen Poots) looks like it will save Tobey’s shop, a disastrous race allows Dino to frame Tobey for a crime he didn’t commit, and sending Tobey to prison while Dino expands his business out west. Two years later, Tobey is released and set on revenge—but he knows his only chance to take down his rival Dino is to defeat him in the high-stakes race known as De Leon—the Super Bowl of underground racing. However to get there in time, Tobey will have to run a high-octane, action-packed gauntlet that includes dodging pursuing cops coast-to-coast as well as contending with a dangerous bounty Dino has put out on his car. With the help of his loyal crew and the surprisingly resourceful Julia, Tobey defies odds at every turn and proves that even in the flashy world of exotic supercars, the underdog can still finish first.

IN NEED FOR SPEED, THE CARS ARE HOT, THE RACING IS INTENSE, AND THE STORY KEEPS PLAYERS AT THE EDGE OF THEIR SEAT. SCOTT WAUGH, Co Founder of Bandito Brothers, was drawn to filmmaking at a young age. As the son of the original Spiderman, Fred Waugh, Scott began to dabble as a filmmaker at the young age 12. Since earning a B.F.A. from the University of California at Santa Barbara, Scott has worked as a producer, director, editor, cameraman, and stuntman. In 2006, he founded Bandito Brothers, an independent content creation studio, with his business partner Mouse McCoy. In January 2012, Variety named him one of its 10 Directors to Watch. Scott became a stuntman in 1982 and retired in 2005. He has been involved in more than 150 film and television productions in various capacities and was fortunate to live on sets with directors Michael Mann, Steven Spielberg, and Oliver Stone. As a producer, Scott focuses on cinematic action theatrical films, exhibited by his box office successes Step Into Liquid, Dust to Glory, and the 2012 release Act of Valor. Augmenting his success as a filmmaker and business executive, Scott collaborated with his father to invent the 35mm helmet camera and an innovative handheld camera called the Pogo Cam. Designed to place the audience in the action, the Pogo Cam produced a dynamic and vibrant viewing experience. Scott has operated the Pogo Cam on over 30 productions, including the hockey sequences in Disney's The Miracle. 12

IN JULY OF 2013 NEED FOR SPEED WAS FILMED IN MOAB AND NEAR THE CITY OF WENDOVER. Locations Manager Patrick Mignano did the initially scouting in Utah where they considered some high alpine highways for a chase sequence. Even though they ended up making the creative decision to film in some of Utah’s more classic red rock areas, he says, “We leaned heavily on Derek Mellus and the Utah Film Commission. Derek was really great—I mean really great—with regards to providing assistance with the scouting, all the contacts with the National Forest Service, the BLM, the highway patrol. He got me a meeting with the actual head of UDOT which was pretty cool. I mean everybody in Utah was so great. They were all, ‘What can we do for you?’ It’s not an easy show. We’re talking closed highways. We have low flying helicopters. We have car-to-car stuff. It was a very complicated action sequence that we were filming—a very complex, logistical monster—and everybody was really terrific.” 13

UTAH BLM DIRECTORY www.blm.gov/ut UTAH DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION DIRECTORY www.udot.utah.gov 801-965-4000 UTAH NATIONAL FOREST Tara Penner, the Director for the longest running film commission in the world says, “With Need for Speed, some of their script sequences sounded a little bit scary on paper. It’s crashing vehicles and rolling them off of the side of a cliff. But our departments here understand that in the film world what’s written on the page and what may appear on the screen, during shooting, is not really as bad as it may seem.” Because the story line features a cross-country race, multiple states and locations were used for filming, including Georgia, to Michigan, Utah and California. Locations manager Patrick Mignano says, “The people at the Utah Film Commission (and I’m not just saying this, because I’ve worked with film offices that are less than good) are terrific. They got us whatever we needed. I became pretty good friends with Derek and I spent a lot of time with him. They made it really easy and they did whatever we asked. We asked quite a bit and they delivered in a timely fash14 ion. They were very instrumental in getting the ball rolling in the state. “I’m not trying to get creative— it’s all true—the landscape in Utah is amazing. It’s the varied terrain from the high alpine highways to the real rugged red rock canyon country in Southern Utah. The geographic diversity is really a strong point for Utah with regards to location filming. And also, you’ve got Salt Lake City—a whole major metropolitan area if you need that too. Utah’s got a lot of great stuff.” Need for Speed is scheduled for release through Disney’s Touchstone Pictures label, and should cruise into theaters on March 14, 2014. The movie will “embody everything that fans of action racing films want to see – hot cars, high-stakes street racing and mind-blowing stunts,” says director Scott Waugh. “The adrenaline-fueled story across America will keep viewers on the edge of their seats.” Eastern Utah Ashley National Forest 355 North Vernal Avenue Vernal, UT 84078 (435) 789-1181 Southwestern Utah Dixie National Forest 1789 N Wedgewood Ln Cedar City, UT 84721 (435) 865-3700 Central Utah Fishlake National Forest 115 East 900 North Richfield, UT 84701 (435) 896-9233 Moab Area Manti-La Sal National Forest 599 West Price River Dr. Price, UT 84501 (435) 637-2817 Salt Lake Area Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest 857 W.

MCLAREN P1 // Unveiled in 2013 at the Geneva Motor Show, production of the McLaren P1 was limited to 375 units and those sold out by November of the same year. With a 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged V8 gas engine and an in-house electric motor, it’s a whole lot faster than its the F1 predecessor. The P1 will go from 0 to 200 km/h (124 mph) in 6.8 seconds. It has a top speed of 239 mph. Taking into account add-ons and custom designs, the McLaren P1 has an average sales price of US$1,600,000. LAMBORGHINI SESTO ELEMENTO Lamborghini produced only 20 Sesto Elementos in 2013. The 5.2-liter V-10 engine delivers a total of 570 horsepower. With a top speed higher than 200 mph, you won’t see this machine on the road any time soon; it’s made for the track only. At 2200 pounds, this car weighs 400 pounds less than a Mini Cooper S, but has three times the power. This little car comes with a sticker price of US$2,200,000. BUGATTI VEYRON Designed by Volkswagon Group, the Bugatti Veyron Super Sports became the fastest street-legal car in the world in April 2013 with a top speed of 267 mph. It features a 8.0-liter, quad-turbocharged, W16 cylinder engine, equivalent to two narrow-angle V8 engines. It can go from 0 to 200 km/h (124 mph) in 9.8 seconds. But it’s not just what’s under the hood that lends the Veyron its speed; the outer shell is made entirely of carbon fiber. Base prices in the U.S. start at a cool US$2,700,000. KOENIGSEGG AGERA R The Koenigsegg Agera R gets its name from the Swedish verb “agera” which means “to take action.” It sports a 5.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine and can go 0–200 km/h (124 mph) in 7.8 seconds and with a top speed of 273mph, six mph faster that the Bugatti. The wing on the Agera R uses the pressure of the wind at high speeds to force it downward and reduce resistance, making it lighter and smarter than conventional hydraulics. Prices on this speed demon start at US$1,600,000. FORD MUSTANG GT500 The hero of the four-wheeled stars is the customized Ford Mustang GT500. Built to have a “gnarly, sinister look,” says head designer Melvin Betancourt, it was hand-made just for the show. (Seven copies were made by his team, but only one survived the filming.) Waugh wanted “a car that truly was definitive of American racing.” The GT500 comes with a 5.8-liter supercharged engine capable of, at least in the film, 900hp. With no other public specs yet, you’ll just have to catch the film. 15
