Sony’s Twisted Metal has just been released the other day and we’re here with more news regarding the franchise. It’s been reported that Sony has picked up the videogame series for a potential live-action movie.
Sony Pictures as apparently made a seven-figure deal for Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance co-director Brian Taylor to write and direct the film treatment of Twisted Metal, while Avi and Ari Arad, producers for Sony’s Spider-Man films are set to produce.
It’s been told that the movie will feature staple characters such as: Sweet Tooth, Doll Face and possibly more. Twisted Metal’s recurring story or theme, has been that the characters all want something and they enter the contest in order to have their wishes granted by Calypso. Of course, not everything is as they seem.
Let me just say that I hope this does come to fruition but please don’t dumb it down and take out the game’s violence and macabre appeal.
Twisted Metal the game is now out exclusively for the PS3
