Twisted Metal: The Movie

Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance co-director To helm video game film adaption



The video game franchise Twisted Metal is coming to the big screen courtesy of the co-director and producers of Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance.

Deadline reports that Brian Taylor, half of the Neveldine/Taylor team behind the Crank films and GR2, has sealed a deal to write and direct a live-action feature film version of Twisted Metal for Sony and producers Avi Arad and Ari Arad. Avi Arad, as you may remember, used to run Marvel Studios and remains a producer on the Spider-Man films.


"Like the game, the film will revolve around an underground event that pits a number of combatants in a fight to the death. They are outfitted in armored weaponized cars that are pimped out with heavy weaponry that includes missiles and machine guns. Some drop mines or launch electrical charges," according to Deadline. "The proprietor of the race is Calypso, a string-puller dedicating to examining the human condition, such as what makes a peaceful man violent, what terrifies a violent man and who will make a Faustian bargain in which they risk their lives. The sole survivor will get any wish granted."


The killer clown Sweet Tooth and the mask-wearing, truck-driving Doll Face are expected to appear in the film.

Could be cool but i dont know yet

I gotta admit thou Taylor´s and Neveldine´s filming style fits perfectly for this.

The original death race was great. That remake reimagining a few years back was terrible. Paul ws Anderson blows!

Tournament style video games make horrible movies. If you want citations check Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat, Tekken, DOA...shit, there are a lot of movies made from fighting games...

I love the Twisted Metal games, and if done right a movie could turn out to be awesome, and Brian Taylor seems like the perfect choice to helm it.

Video game films usually turn out really bad, but yeah go for it. One of these days they'll make a good one, hopefully
