Legendary driving for Hot Wheels pic

Interest in a Hot Wheels movie is revving up again, with Legendary Entertainment in early negotiations with Mattel to acquire film rights to the popular toy car line.

The deal would keep the project parked at Warner Bros., where Legendary is based.

No director or writers have yet been hired, but the potential pic is not targeted at the kids who buy Hot Wheels. Instead, the plan is to produce an edgier pic along the lines of Universal's box office success "Fast Five." . . .

Simon Crane will direct.

 

Paul Attanasio (Donnie Brasco, Quiz Show, The Good German, The Sum of All Fears) is rewriting the script.

 

 

The story centers 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.
