“Fright Krewe” – Dreamworks and Eli Roth Team Up for Kids Animated Horror Series

Horror

Peacock’s “Twisted Metal” television series is roaring to life this summer, and a brand new clip from the series was just shared during #SummerGameFest this afternoon.

“Twisted Metal” premieres on July 27. Watch the clip below, which features iconic video game character Sweet Tooth and teases the overall tone of the upcoming series.

Peacock’s high-octane action comedy series starring Anthony Mackie follows “a motor-mouthed outsider who is offered a chance at a better life, but only if he can successfully deliver a mysterious package across a post-apocalyptic wasteland.”

Will Arnett will be *voicing* Sweet Tooth in Peacock’s “Twisted Metal” television series, with AEW superstar Samoa Joe physically embodying the iconic character. Neve Campbell has been cast as Raven, with Stephanie Beatriz, Thomas Haden Church, Mike Mitchell, Tahj Vaughans and Lou Beatty Jr. also starring in the video game adaptation.

The original take for the live-action series comes courtesy of Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, the duo behind Zombieland and the Deadpool movie.

Michael Jonathan Smith (“Cobra Kai”) is on board to write and show-run the “Twisted Metal” series. Additionally, Will Arnett and Marc Forman are executive producing.

The first Twisted Metal game was released in 1995, developed by SingleTrac and published by Sony for the PlayStation. That original game spawned follow-ups and spinoffs, with a movie adaptation at one point in the works from the director of Crank and Ghost Rider. That project never came to be, and a TV adaptation has been in development for the past few years.
