From the Wachowski brothers and producer Joel Silver, creators of the
 groundbreaking "The Matrix" trilogy, comes the high-octane family
 adventure "Speed Racer," which follows the adventures of the young
 race car driver Speed (Emile Hirsch) in his quest for glory in his
 thunderous Mach 5. "Speed Racer" marks the Wachowski brothers' first
 writing/directing collaboration since "The Matrix" movies. Joel
 Silver, who previously worked with the Wachowskis on "The Matrix"
 movies and "V for Vendetta," produced the film under his Silver
 Pictures banner. Larry and Andy Wachowski and Grant Hill are also
 producers, with David Lane Seltzer and Bruce Berman serving as
 executive producers. "Speed Racer" stars Emile Hirsch, Christina
 Ricci, Matthew Fox, John Goodman, Susan Sarandon, Benno Furmann,
 Hiroyuki Sanada, Asian pop superstar Rain, and Richard Roundtree.
 Based on the classic series created by anime pioneer Tatsuo Yoshida,
 the live-action "Speed Racer" will showcase the kind of revolutionary
 visual effects and cutting-edge storytelling that have become the
 benchmarks of the Wachowski brothers' films. "Speed Racer" is a
 Warner Bros. Pictures presentation, in association with Village
 Roadshow Pictures, of a Silver Pictures Production, in association
 with Anarchos Productions.
