Is a Full Throttle movie happening? No. Is there a full script for it anyway? Yup. Warcraft director Duncan Jones decided to use his in-quarantine time during the COVID-19 pandemic to draft an entire script for a non-existent Full Throttle film. The script’s faithfulness to the game is making it easy to envision an adapted movie.
The top of the script sets the tone of why this project even came to be, labeled “draft — COVID! Does anything matter!?” While some of us were catching up on our gaming backlogs, Jones wrote an entire movie. Balance.
It blew my mind!
I LOVED that game. I mean, REALLY loved that game.
So the next time I had one of those freezes, I started writing this-
A fan script for the LucasArts classic, FULL THROTTLE.

The director took to Twitter to share the script in its entirety while also taking a moment to share the video inspiration behind his script, a re-imagined Full Throttle 2020 creative endeavor helmed by Red Knuckles.
Full Throttle first burst onto the gaming scene back in 1995. Developers Tim Schafer and Dave Grossman (then at LucasArts) crafted an expertly fine-tuned narrative perfect for those craving a motorcycle-driven adventure. With every month seemingly confirming a new videogame movie or television adaptation, this script — while casually made — isn’t half bad when gauging the potential for a Full Throttle film.
