Aaron Paul - Aaron Paul didn't want to read 'Need For Speed' script

Aaron Paul didn't want 'Need For Speed' to be just ''another video-game movie''.

The 34-year-old actor is currently starring in the film adaptation of the popular game developed by EA for consoles such as Xbox and PlayStation, and he claims he was sceptical about the project until he realised the script was actually really strong.

He said: ''I didn't even want to read the script. I saw the scrip and was like, 'Oh, no, another video-game move...' So it took everything in me to read the first page.

''And once I turned the first page, I kept turning. I was so surprised that it had a great human story behind it and great characters that I found myself instantly invested in.''

The 'Breaking Bad' actor's co-star in the film, Ramon Rodriguez, was also doubtful about whether it would have a serious plot-line but admitted he too changed his mind as he started to relate to the characters in the script.

He told The Hollywood Reporter: ''When I first heard about the script, I thought, 'Ugh, I don't want to do just another car film or a video-game adaptation that doesn't work.'

''But when I read the script, the thing that caught me was the story of these brothers and these guys, which I was actually kind of attracted to, and to see them come together for a buddy of theirs, I can really relate to that.''
