Twisted Metal Movie Confirmed

Twisted Metal Movie Confirmed

Twisted Metal, the over the top vehicular combat title developed by Eat Sleep Play, is making its transition to the silver screen. According to Deadline, Sony Pictures has made a preemptive deal with Brian Taylor (of Crank and Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance fame) to write and direct a live action Twisted Metal movie. The deal is reported to be worth seven figures and would put Taylor as the sole director, contrary to his previous work that often teamed him up with fellow director Mark Neveldine. ┬áThe live-action adaptation of Twisted Metal is said to include the franchise’s signature characters Sweet Tooth, Doll Face, and Calypso.
