Twisted Metal


 

THE BUZZ: Sony Pictures has signed Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance’s Brian Taylor to write and direct a movie based on the video game Twisted Metal.

EGM’S TAKE: Considering that Twisted Metal is a Sony property, there is no surprise there they are the studio working on it and that they have signed Avi and Ari Arad, who also did the Ghost Rider and Spider-Man movies for Sony, to produce. But signing Brian Taylor to a 7-figure deal when he is unproven at handling the directorial reigns by himself could be setting him up for a fall. Then again, with both Crank movies and now Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance under his belt, both of which had awesome car and motorcycle action sequences, this could give him a chance to really spread his wings, especially as he will be writing the script so he knows just what he can and can’t pull off. Not to mention, I’m sure Taylor is likely at least familiar with the Twisted Metal story since he also did the movie Gamer.

Much like the game, the movie intends to deal with an underground event that pits different combatants against each other in a fight to the death and the proprietor of the race is a mysterious figure named Calypso. The only characters confirmed to be in the movie right now is the infamous Sweet Tooth and Dollface in her custom 18-wheeler.

What do you folks think? How will Sweet Tooth translate to the big screen and who should play him? What about the idea that new characters like Dollface are supposed to be included? Will David Jaffe make a cameo? Let us know your thoughts below!
