This stuntman can do a whole lot more than ride motorcycles in the game follow-up to the superb PSN title.

Joe Danger stands as one of the best exclusives that has released to the PlayStation Network. For fans of the frenetic pace and crazy racing/platforming of that game, it looks like Hello Games is about to up the ante. The teaser image for the new game shows Joe broadening his stunt skills across all sorts of situations, from jetpacks and skis to mine carts and tanks. If you look closely at the teaser poster image above (click on the picture for a larger version), you'll see the game features "Time Travel and Dinosaurs and Giant Robots."  Also: "There Are Lots Of Explosions."

"It’s kind of a sequel to Joe Danger, but it’s also something entirely new. I guess I would say that the entire gameplay experience of Joe Danger on PSN, would be just one short scene in this new game."Hello Games' Sean Murray told Game Informer. "The awesome thing is that when you play the game, you’re making a film. It’s the most ridiculous action movie ever made, but you are creating it, scene by scene. If you nail every scene, then the film will be perfect, and if you’re terrible, then it’ll probably be hilarious."

Murray said platforms hadn't yet been determined for the new game, but strongly hinted that the team is exploring additional avenues beyond an exclusive relationship with PSN. We've assumed at least the strong likelihood of a PS3 release, but note that info is unconfirmed as of now. We'll have more on Joe Danger: The Movie as soon as we get more details from the development team. Hello Games will be showing off the game at GamesCom, so expect some new information around the time of that show.
