A new Twisted Metal clip was released during today’s Summer Game Fest presentation, giving viewers a look at the game series’ iconic character Sweet Tooth in live-action.
In the new clip, Anthony Mackie‘s John Doe is confronted by Sweet Tooth — played physically by Samoa Joe and voiced by Will Arnett — in a casino. After some brawling, the duo end up singing “Thong Song” together.
Check out the Twisted Metal clip below:
The show is based on a concept from Deadpool writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, who will executive produce. It will be written by Cobra Kai scribe Michael Jonathan Smith, who will also serve as an EP. Other executive producers include PlayStation Studios’ Hermen Hulst, Qizilbash and Carter Swan of PlayStation Productions, Inspire Entertainment’s Jason Spire, Electric Avenue’s Will Arnett and Marc Forman, and Peter Principato of Artists First. Bad Trip‘s Kitao Sakurai is also set to executive produce and direct a few episodes. Stephanie Beatriz, Thomas Haden Church, Neve Campbell, Will Arnett, and Samoa Joe have been cast so far.
Sony is also allegedly creating another Twisted Metal game and it is likely being positioned to come out around the same time as the Peacock series. After reportedly changing developers, the game is said to be coming from Firesprite, a studio Sony acquired in September 2021. However, this game has yet to be formally revealed.
