Twisted Metal TV Series Reportedly In Development At Sony
The Twisted Metal games are well-known for their over-the-top characters and explosive vehicular combat, but it appears the likes of Sweet Tooth the flame-headed killer clown may be getting their own TV series. A new report suggests the adaptation has just recently started production by way of Sony’s new PlayStation-branded film and TV division, PlayStation Productions.
According to ResetEra, the reveal happened as part of a recent Sony investor relations meeting where a Q&A session was held by Sony Pictures Chairman and CEO Tony Vinciquerra. No other information such as the show’s creative personnel or distribution were divulged, but it’s speculated that a much more substantial reveal could happen sometime in the near-future.
The idea of a Twisted Metal TV series is surely an exciting one for fans of the all-out vehicular battler, but there’s still a real possibility that this could all be a hoax. For one, this supposed Q&A session from Tony Vinciquerra isn’t yet available to view online, making claims of a Twisted Metal series difficult to 100% substantiate.
However, it should be noted that this potential tidbit comes only a day after Sony officially unveiled their new film and TV division called PlayStation Productions. As per the announcement, the gaming-centric production house was premised around adapting various popular PlayStation properties, opening up any number of possible content from the Sony console’s 25-year history.
As Twisted Metal is one of the biggest franchises released for the original PlayStation, it would be fitting to see it go forward as one of the brand’s first scripted shows. Whether all this may actually happen currently remains to be seen, but if production really has begun, it’ll be a while before fans might actually see anything shown off.
