Duncan Jones, director of films such as 'Moon', 'Source Code' and 'Warcraft' has been tweeting about his desire to direct an adaptation of hit 90's game 'Full Throttle'.
The director has taken to Twitter to encourage his followers to make Disney aware he has an interest in directing the project, as Disney own the rights to the game.
'Full Throttle' was originally released in 1995 by LucasArts, which was subsequently sold to Disney in 2012 as part of the deal that saw 'Star Wars' films produced for Disney.
LucasArts was subsequently shut down by Disney following the purchase.
The Tim Schafer game is a cult classic of 90's gaming and tells the story of Ben, a biker gang leader who is framed for the murder of a motorcycle manufacturing CEO and must clear his name.
Typical of Tim Schafer games, the game has an irreverent sense of humour, best encapsulated by virtue of an option where you can attempt to kick every person or object you can interact with in the game.
The game was remastered in 2017 for PlayStation 4, with an Xbox One port following in 2020.
Jones wrote a script for a 'Full Throttle' film during the Covid-19 pandemic, which is available to read online and posted it to his Twitter account last January.
The director has expressed interest in directing an adaptation of the game for streaming service Disney+.
Jones shot to fame in 2009 with his directorial debut 'Moon', which starred Sam Rockwell and won Jones a BAFTA for Outstanding Debut By a British Writer, Director or Producer.
Jones gained further attention within the world of cinema for his 2011 science fiction thriller 'Source Code' and followed that up with 'Warcraft' which holds the title as the highest-grossing video game adaptation of all time.
2018's 'Mute' represents Jones' final film to date, but based on his eagerness, he wants to get a 'Full Throttle' film off the ground.
