'Hot Wheels' Movie Continues Developing for Some Reason, Involves Classic Hot Wheels Plot
Legendary Pictures has finally found the guiding hands to make their cars go vroom. The studio has just announced the writer and director who will be turning toy cars into a movie, revealing that twice Oscar-nominated Quiz Show screenwriter Paul Attanasio will begrudgingly rewrite a script for stunt coordinator and frequent second unit director Simon Crane to direct Hot Wheels. The film's current draft reportedly "centers on a washed-up Illinois State Trooper who, after a dangerous military device falls into the hands of a criminal, fights the man his father once put behind bars." Just the fallen-from-grace character we always imagined would drive that car that looks like a snake.
