Speed: An Iconic Film
Amidst the ongoing writers’ strike in Hollywood, Joss Whedon (known for The Avengers) has provided a captivating behind-the-scenes account of the film Speed. In this thrilling feature, Jack Traven, a SWAT officer, becomes embroiled in an incredibly intense road adventure. Howard Payne, a disturbed terrorist, plants a bomb on a city bus in Los Angeles, and it must maintain a specific speed limit (50 miles per hour or approximately 80 kilometers per hour) to prevent it from exploding. Guided by a relentless rhythm for nearly two hours, Speed captivates its audience with its fast-paced action! However, were you aware that the project initially faced a completely different fate?
