Will Arnett has joined the solid of Twisted Metal as a homicidal clown who murders his enemies with an ice cream truck.
Of all of the quite a few video video games which can be being tailored for tv proper now, Peacock’s Twisted Metal present is likely to be the weirdest. The video games it’s primarily based on are the equal of preventing video games with vehicles; gamers drive ridiculous automobiles decked out with rocket launchers, flame throwers, and so forth whereas attempting to destroy each different automobile of their neighborhood. Twisted Metal is technically the longest working PlayStation-exclusive franchise, although it hasn’t seen a brand new title since 2012. (We’d be prepared to guess there will likely be one other installment across the launch of this present.)
But even when individuals doing their damnedest to slaughter one another in absurd vehicles doesn’t sound like a shoe-in for the Emmys, the solid of the brand new present is spectacular. We already knew that Anthony Mackie (The Falcon and the Winter Soldier) can be headlining the present as John Doe, a sharp-witted milk man on a quest to achieve New San Francisco. Then it was introduced that Stephanie Beatriz (Brooklyn Nine-Nine) will likely be enjoying a “badass car thief” named Quiet and that Thomas Hayden Church (Spider-Man 3) will painting the villainous Agent Stone, a freeway patrolman who “rules the roads with a silver tongue and a twisted iron fist.” On prime of that, Scream star Neve Campbell will visitor star as a personality named Raven, who drove a decked-out hearse within the video games.
And the information saved piling in as we speak, as The A.V. Club reviews that Will Arnett (Arrested Development, Bojack Horseman) will likely be enjoying Sweet Tooth, a homicidal clown who drives an ice cream truck. It’s not but clear if his head will likely be perpetually on hearth like it’s within the video games, however we’re open to something. If Twisted Metal may be stated to have a mascot, it’s this man.
Arnett was already hooked up to the sequence as a producer, so it’s no shock to see him be a part of the solid. Twisted Metal is being written by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, the duo behind Deadpool. It’s being developed as a half-hour motion comedy sequence, and with all of the expertise that’s getting behind the present, it might find yourself being an entire lot of enjoyable. It’s as a consequence of begin filming any time now.
Twisted Metal is predicted to premiere on Peacock someday in 2023.
