Scream queen Neve Campbell has actually signed up with the ever-growing cast of Peacock’s live-action adjustment of Twisted Metal. Campbell, understood for her functions as Sidney Prescott in the Scream franchise and most just recently as Mickey Haller’s ex-wife in Netflix’s The Lincoln Legal Representative, will play Raven, with more information about her character yet to be revealed. The iconic scream queen will snatch a repeating visitor star area alongside with fellow stars Anthony Mackie as John Doe, Stephanie Beatriz as Peaceful, and Thomas Haden Church as Representative, with the series directed by Kitao Sakurai.

Campbell has a history of handling distinct functions, and Raven makes certain to be another wild turn. Campbell’s success as a star can be credited to her option of characters from last lady Sidney Prescott, to teen witch Bonnie in The Craft and more major functions on Grey’s Anatomy, and Home of Cards. Twisted Metal will be Campbell’s very first venture into tv funny.


The Twisted Metal series is set to be a half-hour live-action television series with action loaded funny comparable to the initial franchises gameplay. The series is based upon an initial take by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick (Deadpool, Zombieland), composed by Cobra Kai writer Michael Jonathan Smith about a “motor-mouthed outsider offered a chance at a better life, but only if he can successfully deliver a mysterious package across a post-apocalyptic wasteland”. Twisted Metal was very first launched in 1995, established by SingleTrac and released by Sony for the PlayStation. Because its preliminary release, Twisted Metal has actually generated a variety of spin-offs and the tv series has actually remained in the works for rather a long time.

“’Twisted Metal has been a global phenomenon for more than 25 years, but it was the creative vision for this live-action adaptation, led by Michael Jonathan Smith, Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, that blew us away,” stated Lisa Katz, president of scripted material for NBCUniversal Tv and Streaming. “Also, Anthony Mackie starring made it undeniable! This adrenalin-infused comedy series is in expert hands with our partners at Sony Pictures Television, Playstation Productions and Universal Television, and will be the perfect addition to Peacock as we continue to look for uniquely entertaining programs.”
