Twisted Metal, the movie?

Looks like there’s a good chance of a Twisted Metal flick happening.

According to a Deadline report, Brian Taylor, co-director of Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, has been asked to write and direct the thing. It’s to be based on the games’ story, with Sweet Tooth, Doll Face and others fighting it out in a Calypso-run tournament.

Avi and Ari Arad are said to be producing.

SCEA has confirmed that it’s been talking with Sony Pictures to make this happen, but wouldn’t confirm anything further.
