Twisted Metal Live-Action Series In Development
Sony and PlayStation productions are bringing the Classic Twisted Metal games to our screens in a new Live-Action series.
The news is in that a live-action series of the Twisted Metal games is currently in development. Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, who have previously worked on the Deadpool and Zombieland franchises, are going to be the executive producers of the show. Michael Jonathan Smith, who worked on Cobra Kai, will be the writer.
PlayStation Productions own Asad Qzibashm said in his statement announcing the show. “
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.”
The series is reportedly set to be an action-comedy.
Twisted Metal if you are unfamiliar is a series of vehicular Combat games that was first released in 1995 on PS1. The game is a sort of demolition Derby that emphasizes the use of ballistic projectiles, machine guns, mines, and even satellite-based and nuclear weapons.
Players choose a vehicle, and an arena or a series of arenas in the story mode to engage in battle with opposing drivers. A variety of weapons and upgrades are obtainable by pick-ups scattered throughout the stage. The last driver alive is the winner.
Twisted Metal was first announced as a series in 2019 and there was also a movie that was announced in 2012 but that never made the light of day, unfortunately.
There have been reports that Will Arnett has been cast in the role of everyone’s favourite character Sweet Tooth. PlayStation has also apparently offered Anthony Mackie and Kumail Nanjiani additional parts on the series, but time will tell if they accept these roles.
It seems that PlayStation is really focusing on getting onto our T.V. screens as they are currently working on “The Last Of Us” T.V. series at HBO as well as working on Tom Holland’s Uncharted movie. The Uncharted movie will hit theaters next year.
This new series will surely spark renewed interest in the Twisted Metal games and might even boost sales for this once popular franchise.
As everyone loves some good mayhem and destruction, this new series will undoubtedly gain a lot of traction as more information surfaces and release dates approach. We will be keeping a close eye so we can keep you updated on the progress of this series and everything else PlayStation decides to grace our screens with.
