Legendary Pictures has found a director for the Hot Wheels movie

10.17.2013

In case any of you were still wondering-- yes, they are still making a HOT WHEELS movie because if you can make a NEED FOR SPEED movie, you can make one for HOT WHEELS.

At first it seems pretty stupid: "They based a movie idea on car toys?" Then you come to the realization that stupid shit is going to get made whether you like it or not. In reality, what's actually irritating is the fact that we hear about all these amazing projects that could be made, and we get…HOT WHEELS. It could be fun, right? With the right cast and a decent script...

That said, Legendary Pictures has hired Simon Crane to direct the film. You may not have heard of Crane before but he is a rather renowned second-unit director. He's worked on films like WORLD WAR Z, STARDUST, and QUANTUM OF SOLACE. Paul Attanasio (DONNIE BRASCO, SUM OF ALL FEARS) serves as scribe on the project.

No word on the plot, so just use your imagination for now.

These movies are made by people who are not smart enough to become bankers or politicians.
They are the makers of million dollar big macs. The exclusivity of the process has nothing to do with competence. That is a shame. Really breaks my heart to know that ridiculous gobs of cash will be spent and nothing of value will be created.

Another project I expect will begin shooting before anyone has actually seen a script.

This could be good with the right script & director

but my Spidey sense tells me this movie is going to be a CARS rip-off. Considering CARS isn't all that great to begin with, this will likely be even worse.

"Slightly more realistic Speed Racer" is the approach that *might* work. There have been several animated Hot Wheels films that aired on Cartoon Network. Simon Crane is a badass, he really has racked up some impressive second unit directing credits. I hope this doesn't turn out to be like when Dan Bradley, also a prolific second unit director and stunt coordinator, directed the Red Dawn remake.
