Twisted Metal will have its own TV series, as we have seen, but the news today is that the protagonist of this will be Anthony Mackie, that is none other than the Falcon of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, as well as the new Captain America, as reported by Deadline.
In production at Sony Pictures Television, within the new division PlayStation Productions, Twisted Metal is a TV series that brings to the screen a live action adaptation, or with real actors, of the particular series created by David Jaffe on the first PlayStation, which mixes racing and shooter with decidedly destructive effects.
Anthony Mackie is expected to play John Doe, with a very important purchase from Sony, intent on pushing hard on this new project: “We are very excited to have Anthony Mackie on board, his ability to mix comedy, action and drama is perfect for the world of Twisted Metal that we are creating, “said Asad Qizilbash, head of PlayStation Productions.
The film script Twisted Metal is an original production by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, the authors of Deadpool, which sees the protagonist try to complete a delivery in order to have, as a reward, a much better life.

The problem is that this must take place through a sort of very dangerous post-apocalyptic wasteland, full of threats, including the classic ice cream truck with the killer clown, a true icon of the series.
The executive producer is Michael Jonathan Smith of Cobra Kai, within a high level production. Among other news, a rumor also speaks of a new game in development together with the Twisted Metal TV series.
