After giving it much consideration and thought, Legendary has decided that Simon Craig will direct Hot Wheels, based on the Mattel toy line.
Hot Wheels has been in development for quite some time. At some point, McG was attached to direct, with a script by writers like Cormac Wibberly (National Treasure) and John Gatins (Flight). Eventually the project went to Art Marcum and Matt Holloway (Iron Man), and is now getting a rewrite by Paul Attanasio (Quiz Show, The Good German).
The story focuses on a washed-up Illinois State Trooper who, after a dangerous military device falls into the hands of a criminal, fights the man his father once put behind bars.
Crane is best known in the business as a second-unit director and stunt coordinator. He’s worked on films like World War Z, »
