Warcraft Director Duncan Jones really wants to make a Full Throttle movie.
The filmmaker, who also created the modern sci-fi classic, Moon, took to Twitter to remind Disney that they want to adapt LucasArts’ iconic point-and-click adventure game.
“If you could all say [Disney] how much you wish they would let me do Full Throttle for [Disney+], that would be lovely and I would be very grateful, ”he said.

Full Throttle originally came out in 1995 and tells the story of Ben, the leader of a motorcycle gang who finds himself embroiled in an intriguing plot of murder, chaos and motorcycles. It’s a classic of the point-and-click adventure genre, and for many players of a certain age, it was an introduction to the game.
A recent Double Fine remake saw Full Throttle return to our screens in 2017 as Full throttle: remastered.
Of course, this isn’t the first time Jones has expressed interest in the property. Back last year, he wrote a “fan script” during a rough time while working on another project.
“I love to write,” he says. “I also hate to write. Sometimes when I can’t extract what I want to write, I write something else. This happened a lot during Covid. “
After spotting Full Throttle creator Tim Schafer posts a link to a fan-made reimagining by Red punches on Vimeo, Jones was inspired to fall for his own script.
“It blew me away!” he said. “I loved this game. I mean, I absolutely loved this game. So, the next time I had one of these freezes I started writing this […] A fan script for the LucasArts classic, FULL THROTTLE. Enjoy. “
Jones made his full script available for reading via drop box, with the script adapting the adventure classic while using several iconic lines from the video game. An instant fan hit if you ask me.
Sadly, it looks like Disney has yet to accept their offer.
But with the game delivering an extremely cinematic experience, I can’t help but wonder if it’s only a matter of time before I see Full Throttle on the big screen.
As for Duncan Jones’ other dream projects, the director also detailed what his Warcraft sequels would look like. However, Legendary isn’t sure if a sequel is possible.
