Emile Hirsch, who stars as Speed in the upcoming Wachowski brothers’ adaptation of the cartoon series Speed Racer, told Empire that the movie will be all green screen.
From the site:
“Nope, it’s all green screen,” Hirsch told us. “There were no sets, just us and the green background. I haven’t seen anything of it finished yet, there was a lot of trust [in the Wachowskis] involved. It’s going to be crazy. Was the monkey real? Yes.”
Speed Racer hits theaters on May 9, 2008.
