The film will now open in U.S. theaters on March 14, 2014, five weeks later than its original release date of February 7, 2014.

Need for Speed will now avoid going up against Warner Bros Lego and Sony/Columbia’s Robocop and so far has the March 14th spot to itself.

The Scott Waugh-directed action flick focuses on ’70s-style fast-paced, high-octane cars and Tobey Marshall (portrayed by Aaron Paul), who races at impossible speeds from New York to LA to get revenge on the man who killed his best friend.

It also stars Kid Cudi, Dominic Cooper and Imogen Poots.

Rodriguez, who starred as Bosley in ABC’s short-lived reboot of Charlie’s Angles, appeared in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen and The Taking of Pelham 123.

Rodriguez – who has been writing his own screenplay with Rosie Perez, Only For My Son, which he plans to direct and produce with her – previously starred in Battle: Los Angeles and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.
