Emile Hirsh as Speed Racer?

The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that actor Emile Hirsh is in talks to star as the cravat-wearing, leather glove totting Speed Racer in the upcoming Wachowski brothers film.

Hirsch most recently starred in "Alpha Dog" and next appears in Sean Penn's "Into the Wild," which Paramount Vantage is distributing in the fall. Other credits include "Lord of Dogtown" and "The Girl Next Door."
So production should be getting underway shortly, once all the principal actors are lined up. Warner Brothers and Village Roadshow are still shooting for a summer 2008 release.
