Just about every Hollywood concept artist has at one point or another worked on some version of the Hot Wheel movie. It's the project that will never die! I got to work on probably the sanest version, being directed by McG as a buddy coming-of-age road trip across an alternate universe America populated by every imaginable automotive subculture. Think the wizard of Oz, but with an orange plastic road rather than a yellow brick one, all leading to the big race at Motor City. The villain of the piece is "the Snake," the very race driver who killed our hero's father in a fiery crash, reincarnated as a street scavenger who will stop at nothing to get his hands on our guy's classic Yenko Camaro. This early piece had him driving an impossibly large monster vehicle.
