Peacock has (finally) revealed the premiere date for its highly anticipated TV adaptation of PlayStation's post-apocalyptic vehicular franchise, Twisted Metal.
The series is set to debut on the streaming service on July 27, bringing the chaotic world of the game to life!
Peacock released a new teaser, offering fans a glimpse of Anthony Mackie's character preparing to drive into a dangerous battlefield. The teaser primarily showcases cars and destruction and concludes with a brief appearance of the iconic Twisted Metal character, Sweet Tooth.
The series will feature Mackie (best known for his role as Marvel's Falcon), as a witty, smooth-talking courier down on his luck. The character reluctantly accepts a dubious offer to transport a mysterious package across the dystopian wastelands that encircle the city. These perilous landscapes are inhabited by marauding gangs, hazardous terrain, and the sinister ice-cream-truck-driving serial killer, Sweet Tooth.
Mackie will be joined by a talented ensemble, including Stephanie Beatriz (Brooklyn Nine-Nine), Thomas Haden Church (Spider-Man 3), and Neve Campbell (Scream) in unspecified roles. Will Arnett will lend his voice to Sweet Tooth, while the character's physical manifestation will be portrayed by legendary pro-wrestling star Samoa Joe. Michael Jonathan Smith (Cobra Kai) serves as the writer and showrunner for the series, which completed filming last summer and is currently in post-production.
Twisted Metal is just one of several PlayStation film and TV adaptations in development. Through its PlayStation Productions arm, Sony has also greenlit projects based on beloved franchises such as Uncharted, God of War, Horizon Zero Dawn, Gran Turismo, and Ghost of Tsushima.
Mark your calendars and get ready for a thrilling ride as Twisted Metal premieres on Peacock on July 27! This is one show I'll definitely be watching! ~Smash
