Twisted Metal TV Series News Update

Well, looks like this show is officially going into production. We’ve got new details on it. The premise sounds quite a bit different from the usual plot of the games, but I’ll be interested to see where this goes.

I honestly liked 2012 on PS3, but seeing how Soyny's been running with it's projects, I don't really have any hope for that TV show unless it's not woke.

Sony doesn't really care about it's IPs and that's why that company is absolutely failing right now compared to the other two which have also made questionable decisions but not as ridiculously loud as Sony.

Newest is Anthony Mackie (The Falcon and the Winter Soldier) will play (an original version of) John Doe, *probably* the main character of the series, or one of them at least.
Similar to Twisted Metal Black's John Doe, this character will have no memory of his past, but unlike the original John Doe this guy talks a lot of shit and is (or thinks he is?) a Milkman ---because if there is an ice cream man in the story, you got to have a milkman too, a natural rival or sorts. And unlike the original John Doe, this guy is black, and doesn't look like the white supremacist from the movie American History X.
Anthony Mackie joins a cast featuring Will Arnett (LEGO Batman) as Sweet Tooth, so looks like we will get a hidden Marvel Vs. DC fight in this series.

Additionally, there are rumors of a PS5 Twisted Metal game to coincide, or to arrive some time during or after the series, that may, or may not tie-in to the TV series, as Jaffe is reportedly not involved. That is according to insiders/journalists, but not really confirmed otherwise. It's a realistic rumor though, why wouldn't they be a developing a game at this point?
Will it be good though?
Certainly Hollywood (remember blowing up the Hollywood sign in Twisted Metal 2?) doesn't care what the TM fans think. They want to do an action-comedy, so be it, that's what we're getting, I just hope they do it right, because if the jokes aren't funny even if the action is great it's likely to fail. Like, think of Batman 1966, that was a comedy unlike its source material but still managed to stay true to the material of that era, but if the comedy were bad it would not have left its mark on the legacy of the franchise. But that certainly did not work out well for the Batman & Robin 1997 film, one of the worst action-comedy films.
Almost risky of Playstation Productions to trust the Deadpool writers with this, and that's coming from someone who liked those films.
But I'd think Twisted Metal Black being the most familiar game in the series, that they would want the TV series to be more like TMB, dark, moody, not comical, morbid.
What they do not understand is there is a generational split in the fanbase and TMB/TMB Online was the great compromise that balanced it all out.
Or maybe they do, and don't give a fuck, and this series is meant more to attract fans of superhero movies. I mean, it's fucking Hollywood, it's what they do.

Looks like TM has a future.

The time is near for Mortimer to raise this site from the dead.

As a mortician I think Mort has the ability to do this.

Kitao Sakurai to direct Twisted Metal on Peacock.
He is also credited as executive producer for episode 1 on https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0757318/.

Considering he is best known for his work on The Eric Andre Show, it is becoming even more clear that the comedy aspects of this project is no exaggeration and will be very deliberate. While this may totally disappoint Twisted Metal fans this show certainly has some appeal for fans of ADULT SWIM style comedy. Perhaps I was too quick to judge this project and it may actually be entertaining, although the interest amongst actual Twisted Metal fans seems very low, and I think they would perceive the show as a parody mocking the property rather than a show that is paying tribute to the more bizarre aspects of the series.

Twisted Metal on Peacock has cast their female lead, Stephanie Beatriz. She is playing an original character named Quiet; she is the disturbed car thief who partners up with John Doe. Considering her name and her backstory, coming from a community that has oppressed her into silence, she'll likely not have much dialogue and thus it makes sense that John Doe is going to be talkative... so think a Batman & Robin type of deal, where Quiet is the silent badass, vengeance seeking Batman type *but with guns* and John Doe is the blabbermouth, annoying shit-bird who has surprising skills but is a pain in the ass to deal with, like Robin.






The Sony Pictures Television-produced series is based on an original take on the property by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick (Deadpool, Zombieland). Michael Jonathan Smith, who works with Sony on Netflix’s Cobra Kai, serves as showrunner, writer and exec producer. PlayStation Productions and Universal Television are also attached to the co-production.

Kitao Sakurai (The Eric Andre Show, Bad Trip) will exec produce and direct multiple episodes of the series. Will Arnett and Marc Forman, via their Electric Avenue banner, also exec produce after the duo secured the rights to Twisted Metal. Reese and Wernick also exec produce alongside Jason Spire, Peter Principato, Asad Qizilbash, Carter Swan and Hermen Hulst.

The casting brings Beatriz back into the Universal Television fold after she spent eight seasons starring on Fox-turned-NBC comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine. The comedy, it’s worth noting, is available to stream on Peacock. Her recent credits include Disney’s animated hit Encanto and Warner Bros.’ In the Heights. She’s repped by ICM Partners, Authentic Talent and Literary Management and Goodman Genow.

A premiere time frame for Twisted Metal has not yet been determined.

Neve Campbell cast as Raven
Reply #10 - 05/28/22 at 14:15:33
 
https://comicbook.com/gaming/news/twisted-metal-tv-series-cast-scream-neve-campb...
The cast is continuing to grow as it has been confirmed that Scream's Neve Campbell will be joining the Twisted Metal cast as Raven, a character featured in Twisted Metal: Black. In the game, Raven is a "emo" teen, so the show will likely take liberties with the character since Campbell is now 48 years old. The press release didn't elaborate on the role she will play in the show, but did say Raven will be a recurring character, so she's here to stay.

Hope this means Shadow will be a regularly seen vehicle. Would be nice to see our favorite purple hearse in live-action.

The great wrestler Somoa Joe will play Sweet Tooth, but the character will be voiced by Will Arnett, as previously reported in early rumors.

And fantastic news for the show - Hammerhead's Mike & Stu from Twisted Metal 2 are coming back in supporting roles.


Mike Mitchell (The Tomorrow War) as Stu, Mike's best friend; Tahj Vaughans (P-Valley) as Mike, Stu's best friend
