Competition for «Fast &amp Furious» «Star Wars» director brings the world’s best-selling toy to the cinemas

Universal Pictures

Michael Bay proved with the Transformers series that popular toys can serve as the basis for hugely successful blockbuster franchises. But apart from the thoroughly successful LEGO and Trolls animated films, there are few toy-based film series that have been able to repeat this feat. Now, however, a promising new cinema title has been announced that certainly promises blockbuster potential: «Star Wars» director JJ Abrams will produce a » Hot Wheels » live-action film. This was announced by Warner Bros., Mattel Films and Abrams’ production company Bad Robot, according to Deadline .

This is «Hot Wheels»

There is hardly anyone who has not at some point in their childhood come into contact with a Hot Wheels toy car. If you didn’t have one yourself, chances are a friend’s child did. Because according to the market research company NPD Group (via Deadline ) , Hot Wheels is the best-selling toy in the world. More than eight billion of the miniature cars have already been sold.

However, Hot Wheels should not be confused with the very similar Matchbox cars, which are also very popular. But while Matchbox focuses more on realistic vehicles, Hot Wheels is characterized by more unusual designs that can attract children’s attention with bright colors and unusual shapes.

On the trail of «Fast & Furious»?

There is no further information on the «Hot Wheels» film for the time being, with the exception of a few vague PR statements promising an «exciting story for the big screen». But it doesn’t take much imagination to imagine «Hot Wheels» as a kind of » Fast & Furious «. After all, it’s all about fast cars here and the «Fast» series has shown how successful films can be produced on this basis.

But while Fast & Furious has grown into megalomaniacal proportions over time, Hot Wheels could take cues from the early installments where tuned cars played a much bigger role than they did in the more recent vin-diesel blockbusters do.

In addition to Hot Wheels, Warner Bros. and Mattel have a whole host of other toy adaptations in the works. However, the most exciting of these is likely to be the upcoming “ Barbie ” movie starring Margot Robbie:

The «Barbie» movie starring Margot Robbie is finally moving forward as this superstar becomes Ken
