Thumbs up 'Speed Racer' Finds Its Trixie in Christina Ricci

Christina Ricci will play love interest Trixie in the Wachowski Brothers' big screen version of "Speed Racer."

But there's still no answer as to who will play the mysterious Racer X!

"Speed Racer" -- or "Mach Go Go Go" if you want to be old school about it -- was created by Tatsuo Yoshida and premiered as an anime series in Japan in 1967. American audiences fell in love with the speedy dubbing and catchy theme song. The cartoon's story centers on a teenaged Speed Racer (Emile Hirsch) who encounters intrigue and danger on his road to racing glory. He is aided by parents Mom (Susan Sarandon) and Pops Racer (John Goodman), girlfriend Trixie (Christina Ricci), little brother Spritle, his monkey Chim Chim and the mechanic Sparky.

"I'm just really excited and kind of nervous and sort of overwhelmed by the whole experience," Ricci says in an interview posted on YouTube. "I love the Wachowskis and have loved their movies and to get to be in one of their movies is so exciting."

Production on "Speed Racer" will begin this summer in Germany. Warner Bros. has already staked out a May 9, 2008 release date for the movie.

Ricci earned respectful reviews for her starring turn in "Black Snake Moan" earlier this year and will next be seen as the title character in "Penelope." "Speed Racer" will join "The Addams Family" films and "Casper" on her TV-to-movies resume.

Man! I can't wait!!
I don't care if this film is good or bad. I'm gonna go see it the moment it hits the big screen. The best period of my life included watching Speed Racer. And the fact that Christina Ricci is in it is just icing on the cake for me. I just love that girl's fo'head.

Re: 'Speed Racer' Finds Its Trixie in Christina Ricci

Okay, since I've already pretty much proven I'm the biggest geek on WTAWorld, I can't tell you how eagerly I'm looking forward to this movie.

My sons and I race as The Go Team in our Formula De League (a board game based on Formula One racing). We even have miniature race cars painted as the Mach IV (crashed by Rex Racer), the Mach V and the Shooting Star.

Re: 'Speed Racer' Finds Its Trixie in Christina Ricci

I heard Don Imus is being considered for the role of Chim-Chim.

Have you seen the "Underdog" trailer yet, RVD? S-U-C-K-S!! The dog doesn't speak in rhyme. HOW CAN UNDERDOG NOT SPEAK IN RHYME?

What? WHAT? That's horrible. Next thing you know he'll be calling Sweet Polly Purebred a "floppy-eared 'ho!"

Not only that, but WADA will probably make Underdog pee in a cup. Those Super Energy Pills have SOMETHING in them.
