There is a sequel in the works for last year’s Need for Speed movie, which sees EA partnering with the same Chinese entities that helped Paramount make Transformers: Age of Extinction.

According to Variety, the followup film is going to be set entirely in China and will feature the nation’s actors in significant roles. It is not confirmed whether Aaron Paul, the Breaking Bad star, will appear in the film – he who took the lead in last year’s movie.

“We are excited to work with EA, one of the world’s most recognized creative companies,” China Movie Channel Yin Cao said. “We are also delighted that much of ‘Need for Speed 2’ would be filmed in China, and we believe it will include much more Chinese talent and elements.”

China Movie Channel is only one collaborating partner, and is joined by Jiaflix Enterprises and 1905 Pictures.

The first Need of Speed movie met with poor reviews but still performed decently by earning $203 million on an estimated production budget of $66 million. In China, it did very well by bagging $65 million. Hence, it’s no surprise that EA is looking to set the sequel in China, where the movie was met well.

There’s no release date for the movie yet, but production is said to begin later this year.
