Disney has moved DreamWorks’ “Need for Speed” back five weeks to March 14, 2014.

Dominic Cooper (pictured above) and Aaron Paul are starring in “Need for Speed,” directed by Scott Waugh from a script by George Gatins, who developed the original story with John Gatins.

Pic is based on the Electronic Arts video game franchise and follows an underground racecar driver (Paul) who owns a garage that modifies expensive cars to make them faster for racing. Framed and sent to prison when his best friend is murdered during a race, he seeks revenge upon his release.

The Feb. 7, 2014, date remains occupied by Warner Bros.’ animated “Lego” movie and by Sony/MGM’s reboot of “RoboCop.” “Need for Speed” is the only title dated for March 14, 2014.
