Video games are once again all the rage and Peacock, one of the many new streaming services trying to put their name on the map, has been inspired to tackle an unlikely adaptation. They are set to bring the iconic Twisted Metal games eries to life, and it seems that they’re take will be strongly inspired by Zombieland due to the adaptation also being written by Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese.
PlayStaiton Studios Senior Producer Carter Swan promises that the upcoming film will have all the “balls-out fun and craziness” that the original gaming series did. He goes on to highlight that Reese and Wernick are “able to kind of take these violent, ridiculous things and make them fun. Zombieland’s a good barometer if you look at what happens in that movie as to what we could do.” It definitely sounds like they’ll have a lot of fun with the adaptation by showrunner Michael Jonathan Smith, which will star Anthony Mackie, Stephanie Beatriz, Will Arnett, and more.
