Twisted Metal TV program originating from the folks behind Cobra Kai and Deadpool

Buckle up for security, due to the fact that it appears that Craving for sweets and his maniacal pals are revving their engines once again. This time, David Jaffe’s violent world of Twisted Metal has been given the green-light in an entire other style, signing up with the growing line of video game IPs getting a TV adaptation.
As reported by Variety, the Twisted Metal TELEVISION series will be an “action comedy” set in a post-apocalyptic universe, where a down-and-out loser is provided a better life offered they can carry a strange bundle throughout the wastelands – bristling with bands of marauders and other eccentric characters. All extremely Mad Max. While the cast list is still on the ground, the woefully edgy serial killer clown Craving for sweets is validated to be putting in an appearance, driving his horrifying ice cream truck through what remains of humankind.
Produced by Sony Pictures Tv and “PlayStation Productions” – which is a thing – Twisted Metal will be written by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, the duo who penned horror comedy Zombieland and the violent comic-book actioner Deadpool. Sounds like a great fit. Michael Jonathan Smith, manufacturer of Karate Kid spin-off series Cobra Kai, is on board as executive producer.
Originally released in 1995, the Twisted Metal series follows a group of castaways as they fight to the death in car bloodsport, the reward being the winner’s biggest dream, approved by doomsday executive Calypso. While some series entries – such as 1996’s Twisted Metal: World Tour and 2001’s Twisted Metal: Black are particularly notable, the series has had more than its fair share of losers, such as 1999’s terrible Twisted Metal 4. With the series in hiatus, the new program might see the method paved for a fresh sequel. I definitely hope so.
