I grew up playing with Hot Wheels cars, but I wonder if they can figure out a good enough story to make a feature film work. Will this turn into a Battleship disaster? Simon Crane has been hired to direct -- he's an acclaimed stunt coordinator (Braveheart, Titanic, Saving Private Ryan, The World Is Not Enough, Hancock, World War Z, etc.), so we know that cool chases, chaotic crashes, and crazy car stunts will be part of the action. Storywise, we'll have ot keep our fingers crossed that screenwriter Paul Attanasio can deliver the goods -- he also wrote the excellent Donnie Brasco and Quiz Show, but he's also responsible for the crappy Michael Crichton adaptation Sphere.
Legendary Pictures has brought us some excellent films during its short history -- The Dark Knight trilogy, Where the Wild Things Are, and Inception -- but also some stinkers, such as Lady in the Water. If Hot Wheels makes it to the silver screen, will it roar to triumph or screech to a disappointing finish?
