‘Twisted Metal’ Gets Adapted for the Big Screen by Brian Taylor

http://movieweb.com/person/brian-taylor-2/ Sony Pictures has hired Ghost Rider Spirit of Vengeance co-director Brian Taylor to write and direct upcoming video game to live action adaptation, Twisted Metal.

The film, and the game, revolve around an underground event that pits a number of combatants in a fight to the death. They are outfitted in armored weaponized cars that are pimped out with heavy weaponry that includes missiles and machine guns. Some drop mines or launch electrical charges. The proprietor of the race is Calypso, a string-puller dedicating to examining the human condition, such as what makes a peaceful man violent, what terrifies a violent man and who will make a Faustian bargain in which they risk their lives. The sole survivor will get any wish granted.

SET VISIT: ‘Ghost Rider Spirit of Vengeance’

Johnny Blaze will ride again! Scheduled for release on February 17th is Ghost Rider Spirit of Vengeance, the long-awaited sequel to '2007s anti-superhero film Ghost Rider, which was based on the popular Marvel Comics character and starred Oscar-winner Nicolas Cage, and Eva Mendes. In the original film, Nicolas Cage plays Johnny Blaze, a stunt motorcyclist who sells his soul to the Devil and as a result, transforms into the flaming vigilante Ghost Rider. While the first movie was a financial success earning over $200 million at the box office, it was a critical disaster and failed to score with fans of the original source material. However, with only Nicolas Cage returning for the sequel from the original cast, and new directors Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor (Crank High Voltage) behind the lens, Ghost Rider Spirit of Vengeance promises to win back disenfranchised fans of the Marvel character and infuse the film with the appropriate dark tone and religious themes missing from its predecessor.

The new film takes place eight years after the original and features a Johnny Blaze who has accepted his place in the world as the Ghost Rider and is heavily drinking to compensate for his nightmarish dilemma. While traveling through Europe, Blaze meets an ancient league of monks that are trying to protect a young boy named Danny Ketch (Fergus Riordan) from his father, the Devil (Ciarán Hinds), who wants to take over the boy's body on his birthday. Marvel fans will recognize Danny Ketch as the future Ghost Rider, as he would eventually inherit the mantel from Blaze in the comics.
