Deadline.com has revealed that Brian Taylor, the director of Crank: High Voltage and Gamer, will write and direct a film adaptation of the Twisted Metal series. More details are available after the jump.
Taylor, who recently co-directed Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, has reportedly been offered a 7-digit sum to work on the project, which like the video game franchise, will revolve around an underground event that pits multiple contestants in a fight to the death. Sweet Tooth and Dollface, both characters from the video games, will be featured in the film, though it is unclear if these will be the main characters.
The latest installment in the Twisted Metal series was released last week as a Playstation 3 exclusive, and is simply known as Twisted Metal. The series, currently owned by Eat Sleep Play, has seen eight major releases since the original was released in 1995.
With a track record consisting of over-the-top action flicks, do think Taylor is the man capable of bringing Twisted Metal to the big screen? Let us know in the comments below!
Missed out on most of the "Golden Age of Gaming" due to not being born until 1988. Been catching up on what I've missed out since I began writing for Elder Geek in 2009. For some reason, continuously mistaken for being Belgian, despite being Dutch.
