"Need for Speed" film to shoot in Detroit, employ local businesses to make race cars

The film incentive dollars are back on track. The Michigan Film Office was able to parlay what was just to be a car-building project into a film shoot as well.


"The Michigan Film Office announced today the feature film Need for Speed has been approved for a film incentive from the state. The DreamWorks Studios’ film chronicles a cross-country journey at impossible speeds and will film in part in Detroit this summer.

In addition to filming in the state, two Michigan businesses – Race Car Replicas in Clinton Township and Technosports Creative of Livonia – are being utilized to build and enhance cars being featured in the film."
