A ‘Hot Wheels’ Movie Is Coming From J.J. Abrams

For a movie about fast cars, Hot Wheels sure is taking its sweet time getting to the screen. Way back in 2013, Mattel had supposedly found a director to make a movie based on the iconic brand of toy cars. But that movie didn’t happen. In 2016, Justin Lin was supposed to make a Hot Wheels movie. He was a great choice; the guy directed a whole bunch of Fast & Furious movies. Did he make a Hot Wheels film? I sure don’t remember one!
