The Associated Press reports that a manager for the South Korean pop artist Rain has said on May 9 that he is negotiating to appear in the Speed Racer live-action movie. Rain is popular throughout much of Asia and was on Time's Most Influential 100 list in 2006 and People's Most Beautiful list in 2007. He headlined Oldboy director Chan-wook Park's last film, I'm a Cyborg (But That's Okay).
The Matrix creators Andy and Larry Wachowski have already signed Emile Hirsch (Speed), Christina Ricci (Trixie), Matthew Fox (Racer X), John Goodman (Pops), Susan Sarandon (Mom), and Kick Gurry (Sparkie). The movie is based on a television series which itself adapted Tatsunoko Production's Mach Go Go Go car-racing anime series.
