Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick are within the driver’s seat for the live-action action-comedy.
When you hear the phrases Twisted Metal, you most likely instantly conjure up a picture of an insane clown (and his posse) driving round a post-apocalyptic panorama in an ice cream truck from hell. “Sweet Tooth,” the clown in query, will proably characteristic closely within the advertising and marketing for Sony Pictures Television and PlayStation Productions’ deliberate live-action collection primarily based on the online game franchise. News of Sony’s curiosity within the adaptation has been round for fairly a while now, however the information of the day is that Deadpool writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick are actually onboard as government producers since their unique tackle the fabric appears to have discovered a candy spot.
Variety studies that Reese and Wernick will tackle the undertaking with a pitch that sees “a motor-mouthed outsider who is offered a chance at a better life… if he can successfully deliver a mysterious package across a post-apocalyptic wasteland. With the help of a trigger-happy car thief, he’ll face savage marauders driving vehicles of destruction and other dangers of the open road, including a deranged clown named who drives an all too familiar ice cream truck.” See? We knew Sweet Tooth would not be far behind.
But past the notorious clown, I’d be impressed by just about anybody who may bear in mind any plot particulars from the destruction derby smash-’em-up with out Googling it first. Over the franchise’s 10 video games, gamers competed in an more and more insane event to destroy all different contestants (suppose Mortal Kombat) so as to be victorious and win a once-in-a-lifetime want (suppose Dragon Ball), which normally comes with “Be careful what you wish for” penalties. It sounds just like the TV collection will take the story out of the sector and onto the streets for the live-action action-comedy.
Michael Jonathan Smith (Cobra Kai) will write and government produce the collection with Reese and Wernick government producing; Will Arnett additionally government produces through Electric Avenue (and is rumored to voice Sweet Tooth, although that continues to be to be seen) with Marc Forman and Peter Principato of Artists First; Asad Qizilbash and Carter Swan of PlayStation Productions; and Hermen Hulst, head of PlayStation Studios.
Qizilbashm stated of the announcement:
“’Twisted Metal’ is one of the most beloved franchises from PlayStation. We are thrilled to have such a great team working on bringing this iconic game to life for the fans.”
Glenn Adilman, government vp of comedy growth for Sony Pictures Television, echoed the assertion:
“We love Twisted Metal in all its twisted insanity. Michael Jonathan Smith hit it out of the park with an action-packed, brilliantly funny adaptation and we are grateful for the support of Rhett, Paul, Will and our friends at PlayStation.”
