Variety via Animation World Network is reporting that Vince Vaughn (Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story) has pitched to Speed Racer producers Joel Silver and Richard and Lauren Shuler Donner his take on the film which would have him playing Racer X. He would also executive produce on the project. Vaughn’s take focuses on family struggles instead of racing scenes, saying he was attracted to the project because he has been a fan of the show since he was a kid and liked the theme of a protective older brother with a secret identity.
