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.
Hey, are you a child who enjoys Hot Wheels? Good news! There's going to be a movie based around your favorite die cast toy car line! Oh, but one caveat to that exciting news: this movie is ABSOLUTELY NOT FOR YOU.
