In a nutshell: Sony Pictures Television and PlayStation Productions are growing a live-action tv series primarily based on the Twisted Metal franchise. While many would possibly keep in mind the sport for its vehicular carnage, there was really a first rate story behind the entire thing that would make for an attention-grabbing present.
The unique Twisted Metal launched in November 1995 and was the crown jewel of my haul that Christmas. I used to be past hyped for the sport and made it crystal clear to my dad and mom that I should have it. Our custom was to open items on Christmas Eve and when the time got here, I tore into the presents with unbridled fervor.
PlayStation, test. ESPN Extreme Games, test. Twisted Metal? Nowhere to be discovered. I used to be devastated, and regardless of my mother insisting she had bought the sport, it wasn’t there. So, I did what any newly minted teenager would have completed in that scenario – I referred to as up a good friend who I knew had simply obtained the sport and insisted on spending the night time at his home so we may play it. And that’s what occurred; we stayed up all night time enjoying Twisted Metal and it was superb.
Oh, and my mother discovered the sport the following day buried method underneath their mattress.
According to Variety, the Twisted Metal TV series might be an motion / comedy written by Michael Jonathan Smith (Cobra Kai). Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick of Zombieland and Deadpool fame will govt produce alongside Will Arnett.
The present will reportedly comply with a “motor-mouthed outsider” who is provided a likelihood at a higher life, as long as he can efficiently ship a thriller package deal throughout a post-apocalyptic wasteland filled with characters which might be seemingly hell-bent on stopping anybody from passing. And sure, the deranged clown Sweet Tooth and his decked out ice cream truck might be amongst them.
