Mattel and Warner Bros. Photos on Monday introduced plans for a Sizzling Wheels film that is set to carry the tiny toy vehicles to the massive display screen. The film will probably be produced by J.J. Abrams’ Dangerous Robotic manufacturing firm, which was answerable for the newest incarnations of the “Star Trek,” “Star Wars,” and “Mission: Not possible” film franchises.
The film will “showcase among the world’s hottest and sleekest vehicles, monster vehicles, and bikes,” in keeping with a press release from Mattel, the toy firm answerable for the Sizzling Wheels line. That does not present a lot of a sign about how a toy-car model will translate right into a film, however the true vehicles the toys are based mostly on present loads of potential supply materials.
The “Quick and Livid” franchise has proven that vehicles and racing can function a leaping off level to extra elaborate motion motion pictures, and the “Want for Pace” online game franchise impressed a 2014 film. The latter wasn’t precisely successful, admittedly, exhibiting that it takes greater than a recognizable model title to make a very good film.
Mattel and Warner Bros. additionally did not announce a launch date for the film. The 2 firms already plan to launch a Barbie film starring Margot Robbie in 2023, with motion pictures based mostly on a number of different Mattel toy properties deliberate after that. The checklist contains every part from American Lady and Masters of the Universe to Uno and Magic 8 Ball.
If Mattel goes to attempt to flip its toys into motion pictures, it would as effectively embody Sizzling Wheels. Sizzling Wheels at the least has the potential for cool vehicles and motion scenes. It is unlikely that we’ll get that out of the Magic 8 Ball film.
