Watch Out for the Wachowski's Speed Racer Movie

The Wachowski brothers are at it again, dishing out movie stuff that they wanted to watch as kids. Known for integrating anime and other Oriental elements into their productions, they are now making the live action adaptation of Speed Racer, a classic 1960s anime by Tatsuo Yoshida which came out as a full cartoon feature in the early nineties.

What's Speed Racer all about? Fast cars and racing featuring the hero's Mach 5. See how the live action version compares with the cartoon design. The new movie stars Christina Ricci. It would surely be another delicious treat from the Wachowskis as fans would want to see how they would change the elements of the cartoon into something believable.
