Sony Pictures and Happy Madison are developing a feature film adaptation of the French short film “Bad Toys II” says Heat Vision.
A combination of computer animation, comic book panels and live-action, the short involves a destructive car chase on a level akin to the outrageousness of a Michael Bay “Bad Boys” movie.
The difference? The cars are toys. The short resembled nothing if not a highly elaborate pre-vis version of an actual Bay-style chase sequence.
The feature version centers on a grown man reconnecting with his youthful imagination through his son’s toys, and his play turns into an homage to big-budget action films. Adam Sandler and Jack Giarraputo will produce.
