Latest Rumors:

Richard Donner likes the game so much, he is considering making the movie. Goodman/Rosen Productions acquired the rights to develop a film based on "Crazy Taxi" from Sega of America.

Regarding the game, Donner issued a statement saying, "I loved playing 'Crazy Taxi,' and I realized immediately that it had the potential to be a big summer event movie. Sega's game franchise has the perfect mix of action, humor, and great characters to translate to the big screen."

While talking to About.com's Action-Adventure Web page, Donner further gushed on the project, saying, "We're now trying to find a writer. We all have a handle on it -- me, the producers and my company. Everybody in my company loves it. ... Now we've got to create the characters so that you care about [the movie] and you care about them, you get emotionally charged by them and committed and a good story with this insanity of crazy taxis in a major city. It'll probably be New York."

Inside Buzz:

Given that the game doesn't have the obstacle of a prominent true character, like Lara Croft, for example, Donner can do just about anything he wants as long as the final film has a taxi driven crazy. Still, is that enough to base a movie on?

Release Date:

TBD
