Now this is a director-material pairing that makes perfect sense. Brian Taylor, one half of the directing team behind the Crank franchise and Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, has been tapped to write and direct an adaptation of the video game Twisted Metal. Deadline reports that the film will revolve around the underground death fights from the game series, as weaponized cars race for the proprietor Calypso, “a string-puller dedicated to examining the human condition.” Fan favorites like Sweet Tooth and Doll Face are poised to appear in the feature film.

Taylor and his directing partner Mark Neveldine are known for their active directing style, in which they hook themselves up to rigs and wires in order to get in-your-face camera angles. A Twisted Metal adaptation already has the makings of an insane moviegoing experience, but with Taylor onboard I think it’s safe to say that we’ll be in for one hell of a ride. Avi Arad is set to produce the pic for Sony Pictures. If you’re unfamiliar with the game series, hit the jump to watch a trailer.
