Variety reports that a live-action series adaptation of the Twisted Metal PlayStation game franchise is officially moving forward.
Sony Pictures Television and PlayStation Productions are developing a series based on the Twisted Metal vehicular combat games, the first of which was released in 1995. It was originally reported in 2019 that Sony was interested in developing a series based on the games.
The new series is described as an action comedy, based on an original take by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, the writers behind the Deadpool films and Zombieland.
The show is about a motor-mouthed outsider who is offered a chance at a better life, but only 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, whom fans of the game will know as Sweet Tooth.
