It’s been an enormous couple of weeks for PlayStation’s TV arm. Not solely did PlayStation Productions and Sony Photos TV affirm who will play the main roles within the TV collection primarily based on The Final of Us for HBO, however now the businesses have determined to maneuver ahead with a present primarily based on Twisted Metallic. Particulars are nonetheless reasonably slim in the mean time, however PlayStation Productions has selected who can be writing the present.
Selection experiences at present that Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick have been given writing duties on the Twisted Metallic TV present. They appear notably well-suited for a present primarily based on Twisted Metallic, as their earlier works embrace the Deadpool films and Zombieland. So, darkish comedies with loads of violence appear to be forte, and Twisted Metallic positive checks all of these packing containers.
Moreover, Cobra Kai author and producer Michael Jonathan Smith will be a part of Reese and Wernick as a author and government producer on Tornado Metallic, whereas Will Arnett can be an government producer via his firm Electrical Avenue as effectively. Marc Forman and Peter Principato from Artists First will even be government producers on the present, as will Asad Qizilbash, Carter Swan, and Hermen Hulst from PlayStation.
In accordance with Selection’s write up, the present can be set in a post-apocalyptic wasteland during which the principle character can be tasked with delivering a mysterious package deal. A “trigger-happy automobile thief” will be a part of him on this quest and so they’ll be hunted by Candy Tooth (and presumably different characters from the Twisted Metallic franchise) alongside the way in which.
Stangely, information of this Twisted Metallic TV present lands throughout a dry spell for the sport franchise. We haven’t seen a brand new launch within the mainline collection since 2012’s Twisted Metallic for the PlayStation 3, so perhaps now that the TV present has been confirmed, we’ll get a brand new online game on the PlayStation 5? We’ll maintain our fingers crossed, however for now, the present is the one factor that we all know is on the way in which.
