The video game industry has paved the way for popular gaming franchises to jump from pixels to the big screen. Today, we’re seeing that movement happening on a small screen as the Twisted Metal franchise is getting its very own TV series. This news has garnered excitement from gamers and entertainment enthusiasts alike. In this blog post, we’ll dive into what Twisted Metal is all about and what the new TV series has in store for viewers.
Twisted Metal is a vehicle combat game published by Sony Computer Entertainment. Players control their own vehicle, choosing from a wide range of characters, as they battle through various arenas trying to overcome their opponents while also collecting power-ups. The game also features some of the weirdest and grotesque characters you’ll ever find in gaming history. From the clown-faced character Sweet Tooth to the demonic Darkside, each character has a compelling backstory that makes them memorable.
The new TV series, in the works at Sony Pictures TV, will reportedly follow Sweet Tooth, who is a deranged ice cream truck driving clown. We don’t have much information about the plot and where the story will take us, but we’re already imagining the cringy laughter and the uncomfortable feeling that would come along when we see Sweet Tooth going on his psychotic decapitating rampages.
Brian Taylor, the co-writer and co-director of the 2011 film Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, will serve as the writer, director, and executive producer for the Twisted Metal TV series. The project is slated to be a live-action adaptation of the game rather than an animated project. This means that viewers will get a more realistic and cinematic feel from the series, which is a big plus for fans who have been itching for a serious adaptation of their favorite game.
Another interesting character that we hope to see in TV adaptation is Needles Kane, otherwise known as Sweet Tooth. This character was the winner of the “Twisted Metal” competition and was granted by Calypso, the man who runs the contest, a wish that he can have whatever he wants. Needles wished for eternal life, but his wish came with a twisted catch. He is now condemned to live in the body of the demonic ice cream truck driving clown. It’ll be interesting to see this character fleshed out in the series and to see how the team behind the series will bring this character to life.
Needless to say, the Twisted Metal TV series is shaping up to become a must-see for anyone looking for an intense, action-packed, and entertaining show. While we may have to wait for more information to be released regarding the premise and the premiere date, we can all look forward to revisiting the brutal and dark world that Twisted Metal has made a name for itself.
The Twisted Metal TV series is one of the most exciting announcements to come out of the video game industry recently. It’s a game that has been around for a long time and has built up an extensive fan base, and now, it’s finally getting its day in the sun. We’ll be keeping an eye out for any updates on the production and can’t wait to find out more about what the passionate team behind the series has in store for us. In the meantime, we can all dust off our old Twisted Metal games and relive the memories until the series premiere.
