Wachowski pic screens May 3

The Wachowskis will bring “Speed Racer” to close this year’s Tribeca Film Fest on May 3.

“Speed Racer” blends the Wachowskis’ signature visual effects into a family-friendly action pic starring Emile Hirsch, Christina Ricci, Susan Sarandon, Matthew Fox and John Goodman. Joel Silver, who previously teamed with the Wachowskis on “The Matrix” trilogy, is producer for Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow.

As previously announced, fest will open April 23 with Universal’s Tina Fey comedy “Baby Mama.”
