They kinda already did it with "Death Race," but maybe this will be better.
As some of you may know, the new "Ghost Rider" movie – "Spirit of Vengeance" – will be in movie theaters this week. Why is this relevant? Because Sony Pictures producers Avi and Ari Arad told Deadline (as cited at ComingSoon.net ) that they've signed a 7-figure deal to write and direct a movie based on Twisted Metal .
Unsurprisingly, the film will focus on the core principles of the franchise: a group of sadistic drivers fight with vehicle-mounted weapons, including missiles, machine guns, and other over-the-top firepower. And as the fans will tell you, if characters like Sweet Tooth and Calypso aren't involved, the movie is gonna fail…you have to include the mainstays, damnit! The co-director on the project is Brian Taylor who is indeed involved in the new "Ghost Rider" as well.
Well, they'll make a movie based on just about any popular video game these days. Does this one have a chance?
