Update: Stuntman/second-unit director Simon Crane will direct Hot Wheels. Crane was stunt coordinator and second-unit director on World War Z, Men in Black III and Salt, among others. Also, Legendary took the Hot Wheels project with them when they jumped from Warner Brothers to Universal.
June 20, 2011 - Mattel, Warner Brothers and Legendary Pictures are teaming up to make a Hot Wheels movie...but they're being clear: it's Not for kids.
What? Why? Well:
1. Mattel already put their toe in the water with Speed Racer. That was intended to be the Hot Wheel-movie but it flopped harder than a toy car in a loop-de-loop that didn't gather enough initial speed.
2. Mattel gnashes its teeth at the big business the PG-13 The Fast and the Furious movies do: in their eyes, That should be Them. That's why filmmakers say Fast and Furious is the model for the Hot Wheels movie. »
