McG Spills a Little Oil on "Hot Wheels"

by | December 19, 2006 | Comments

While out drumming up some publicity for his new drama "We Are Marshall," director McG (I think his real name is Joe McGinty McNichol or something) was (of course) asked about the status of his upcoming "Hot Wheels" movie, and here’s what he had to say…

(And in case you didn’t know it yet, yes, someone is making a movie out of "Hot Wheels.")

From McG via "That’s something I’m going to produce, it doesn’t feel right for me as a director at this time. I’m going to produce it. We just have a take on that, it’s the story of a kid trying to reconcile with his father. It’s a kid who steals his dad’s racecar and ends up going through a sort of "Back to the Future" portal into this world, and he has to reconcile his relationship with his father. It’s very "Stand By Me" and it should be a good family movie, but it’s not for me as a director at this time. I mean, it’s the biggest toy in history. It’s not a joke."

Interesting; the "Hot Wheels" movie is being approached like a "Stand By Me" sort of story. Uh huh.
