Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. Deadline is reporting that Brian Taylor (half of the team that brought us the Crank films) is going to be writing and directing a solo project for Sony based on the Twisted Metal games.
Yes, I thought the new Ghost Rider film was awful (not in a good way), but the Neveldine/Taylor style of dark humor, frantic action and gory and ridiculous over the top sequences is perfect for this material. I mean, this is a game about pimped out vehicles driven by murderous clowns and serial killers blowing each other up in order to have a single wish granted.
Now, I don't know what to make of Taylor going out alone on this one, but I guess we'll see just how much of the style from the Neveldine/Taylor films he brings to the project. I'm guessing it's quite a lot since Sony is paying him handsomely.
