Hot Wheels movie ad; JJ Abrams is producing a live-action movie

  • A live-action Hot Wheels movie is officially planned at Warner Brothers.
  • JJ Abrams is set to produce the film.
  • There’s no word yet on a release date.

    Hollywood is making a Hot Wheels movie. Yes, small cars. All we know is that producer JJ Abrams is helming a Warner Brothers live-action film featuring “some of the hottest and sleekest cars, monster trucks and motorcycles in the world. “. No actor, no date, not even a teaser photo, have been announced.

    So here’s what we think the cars and drivers should be in the movie. Given our name, we hope Mr. Abrams pays attention to our suggestions.

    All the most valuable Hot Wheels cars

    Bruce Pascal owns $1.5 million worth of Hot Wheels cars and toys — some 3,500 cars in total, more or less — which implored the real estate broker to contain them all in a separate 4,000 square foot home. We’ve spoken to him many times over the years because he’s the leading authority on the insane amounts of money Hot Wheels collectors are willing to pay for toy cars.

    That means the 1969 Beach Bomb (a Volkswagen bus with two surfboards in the back) is a must. In 2019, Pascal said the $175,000 toy was the most valuable Hot Wheels model. It was an unsold prototype, as were the next two most valuable cars, the “Over Chrome” Chevrolet Camaro and the 1968 Ford Mustang. The 1969 Dodge Charger Brown Custom, the 1971 Oldsmobile 442 Purple, and the AMX Ed Shaver Blue from 1969 should be part of this photo too. Of course, we’d also like to see the 1970 Ferrari 312P (with the white, not black, interior), the 1977 White Z-Whiz (a Datsun 240Z), and the six-wheeled Green Open Fire (a stretched AMC Gremlin) find their way in the film.

    All Hot Wheels Legends Tour Winning Cars

    Hot Wheels gives real cars a special honor – the shrinking immortality of becoming a real Hot Wheels toy car – through its Legends Tour. This series of global auto shows ultimately results in the recreation of a winning full-size vehicle in 1:64 scale.

    Last November, our very own Elana Scherr was part of the eight-judge panel, alongside Jay Leno and Henrik Fisker. So let these winning cars into the movie: the Volvo P1800 dragster, the slammed 1970 Pontiac Firebird, the chopped-up Nash Metropolitan and the open-wheel Toyota Supra 2 Jet Z.

    A loop of orange loop

    Every car-mad kid had the chunky orange loop set that pits a pair of Hot Wheels cars against each other in fierce gravity-powered competition. It’s the core culture of Hot Wheels: take over a living room, scatter cars across the floor, squeeze the starting block onto shelves, and race for hours. Hell, Jaguar went full circle in 2015 and sent stuntman Terry Grant through a 6.5g force as he drove backwards in an F-Pace.

    Build an actual orange loop. No CGI.

    Big names and not so hot names

    Patrick Dempsey, Idris Elba, Michelle Yeoh, Tom Cruise, Lady Gaga, Paris Hilton—they all love cars, race cars, do their own vehicle stunts, or do some combination of all three. Ask them if they are busy. We don’t need Nicolas Cage, Shia LeBeouf, John Cena or Vin Diesel in the lead roles. Thanks for your support, but no. The Rock, however, is still acceptable.

    Hopefully Hollywood and Hot Wheels can attract more budding unknown actors and give them a shot at becoming a lucrative series.

    Please don’t make it fast, furious or gone in a minute

    We also don’t need another plot like that of the Fast and Furious franchise or I’m going in 60 seconds. Need help with this Mr. Abrams? Well, we have a few automotive writers in mind who might be able to write a decent script for you.
