Sony's new PlayStation Productions label is going old-school with its first project.
Sony is baking PlayStation into nearly everything it does. It recently launched PlayStation Productions, a studio that'll work along Sony Pictures to adapt big first-party game franchises into TV shows and movies across its entertainment subscriptions. Sony's kicking things off with a surprising gem from PlayStation's early days: the carmageddon smash-up Twisted Metal.
At a recent Sony investor's meeting, Sony Pictures CEO Tony Vinciquerra confirmed a Twisted Metal TV show is happening. "We have a TV show we just agreed to get underway that will be developed from the IP on PlayStation, it's called Twisted Metal. It's a game that was put out many years ago and we're going to develop a TV series around that."
