A Live-Action ‘Twisted Metal’ TV Show is in the Works with Deadpool Writers

Sweet Tooth is coming to life in this upcoming series!

After Uncharted and The Last of Us, Twisted Metal is the next PlayStation game franchise to receive a live-action adaptation, Variety reports.

Sony Pictures Television and PlayStation Productions are currently working on the action-comedy series from Deadpool and Zombieland writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. While the show’s idea came from the two, it will be written by Cobra Kai‘s Michael Jonathan Smith.

“Twisted Metal is one of the most beloved franchises from PlayStation. We are thrilled to have such a great team working on bringing this iconic game to life for the fans,” said Asad Qizilbash, head of PlayStation Productions according to Variety.

The show will follow a “motor-mouthed outsider” who can have another chance to have a better life, but only if he can deliver a mysterious package across a post-apocalyptic wasteland. With a trigger-happy car thief by his side, he will be facing the many dangers of the open road, including Sweet Tooth, a deranged clown driving an ice cream truck.

Further information about the show is yet to be revealed.


Meanwhile, PlayStation fans are also excited for the upcoming Uncharted film which stars Spider-Man star Tom Holland. The Last of Us is also getting a live-action TV show on HBO, starring Game of Thrones actors Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey.
