Looks like Twisted Metal is coming to the big screen.

According to a report from, Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance co-director Brian Taylor has been asked to write and direct a live action film based off the classic car combat game. The report says the film will mimic the storyline from the game, with contestants battling it out in a tournament run by Calypso and the winner getting any wish granted.

The film reportedly includes characters Sweet Tooth and Doll Face so far.

A SCEA spokesperson confirmed to Game Informer the company has been in discussions with Sony Pictures Entertainment about a Twisted Metal movie, but would not share additional details at this time.

Series creator David Jaffe told us last week in an interview there are "no plans" regarding the future of the Twisted Metal franchise.
