Posted on February 15, 2012, Ben Richardson Twisted Metal Movie Deal Signed
Now that the Playstation 3 version of Twisted Metal is in stores, creator David Jaffe can stop with the truck-shooting and psuedo-misogynistic-interview-giving. Not for long, however — according to Hollywood gossip site Deadline, Sony Pictures have just inked a seven-figure deal to turn the game into a major motion picture.
The film will be directed by Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance lensman Brian Taylor, and produced by the well-known, Marvel-affiliated duo Avi and Ari Arad. The plan is to stick close to the source material, centering around an underground car combat competition, and fan-favorite characters like Sweet Tooth and Dollface are sure to appear. Twisted Metal may not have much of story, but that’s nothing a few underpaid screenwriters can’t fix.
