No doubt everyone will be seeing the amazing colour-fest that is Speed Racer, when it finally arrives next week. And as everyone will be seeing it, lots and lots of money will be rolling into Warner Bros bank account, and a sequel will no doubt be on the cards, or should I say tracks…
Christina Ricci, who plays Trixie, Speed’s loyal and ultra cool girlfriend in the movie, spoke to SHH about the possibility of a Speed Racer 2.
“Larry and Andy created a world that they love and created characters that they loved and are attached to. When we were all leaving, we were like ‘write the sequel!’ ‘We want to come back’. And they were like, ‘I know. I know. We’re going to. Don’t worry’. They were as sad for it to be over as we were.”
When asked if she thought the Wachowskis would jump right back into another film she excitedly told us yes!
“Yeah, definitely. Yes, that’s definitely the impression I got.”
As far as how many sequels she’s signed on for, Ricci was rather coy about that.
“I don’t know. You don’t have to sign up for them. It’s more like if this movie does well, they’ll make another one. But, I’m not really sure. I don’t pay attention to that stuff.”
