Act of Valor director Scott Waugh will step behind the camera for the big-screen adaptation, which has been written by George and John Gatins.

DreamWorks chairman Steven Spielberg said last month that the Need for Speed script was "exhilarating" and the game "seems to have been made for the movies".

The film will not be based on a specific game from the EA series, although it will stay true to the franchise while paying homage to classic car movies of the 1970s.

Need for Speed: Most Wanted, the next game in the EA series, was officially announced at the E3 Gaming Expo in June.

It will release for Xbox 360, PS3, PC, PlayStation Vita and mobile devices on October 30.
