WarCraft director wants to go Full Throttle
Writer and director Duncan Jones would love to bring point-and-click classic Full Throttle to the big screen – or at least on Disney+ – and would appreciate fans giving Disney Studios a nudge.
Full Throttle follows the exploits of Ben Throttle, leader of the biker gang Polecats, as he attempts to clear his name and stop the hostile takeover of Corley Motors, the last remaining motorcycle manufacturer in America.
- Tim Schafer was delighted by Jones’ screenplay
- Disney owns LucasFilm and all its intellectual property
- Full Throttle Remastered launched in April 2017
Cult classic: Full Throttle was written and designed by Tim Schafer and Dave Grossman, and is one of the last games from Lucasarts' golden age in the early-to-mid 90s. It was Lucasarts' first truly cinematic adventure game, employing full-motion video and ambitious cinematography instead of sprite animations.
2020 draft: Jones wrote the first draft of a movie adaptation in 2020, and released it online. It remains surprisingly faithful to the original story and dialogue and is a good read whether you're a fan or not.
