Been a while since we last heard anything from the HOT WHEELS movie camp. THR said legendary is close, very close to hiring a director to helm this movie based on the classic Mattel toy car that many of us grew up playing or collecting.
So,.. the choice comes down to between two names.. Simon Crane, 2nd unit director of World War Z, and Juan Carlos Fresnadillo (28 Weeks Later)
We probably would hear announcement soon enough on who between the two will be the lucky winner.
Scripted by Art Marcum and Matt Holloway, they’ve designed this HOT WHEELS movie to more like Mission: Impossible instead of Fast And Furious, so that should give you an idea of what to expect.
Now that Legendary has left WB and teamed up with Universal, HOT WHEELS, which may start production early next year, may be Legendary’s first movie to be released by Universal and that’s a good thing because I have a great relationship with Universal Pictures.
