BD Horror News - Robert Zemeckis <i>Could</i> Direct 'How To Survive A Garden Gnome Attack'
This could be so much fun...won't be though. They have already backed off the original intended R rating.Chad Damiani and JP Lavin have just been hired to adapt How To Survive A Garden Gnome Attack for Robert Zemeckis and his Imagemovers banner, reports Deadline.
The film is a live action film (the garden gnomes will be animated), based on the Chuck Sambuchino novel, which was optioned by Sony Pictures Animation. ImageMovers is producing with The Gotham Group’s Ellen Goldsmith-Vein and Eric Robinson.
The book is a survival guide, preparing the homeowner on the off chance the lawn ornaments stage a home invasion. The intention is to make an edgy PG-13 version (its original intent was an R), so the gnomes will be scary. Zemeckis is developing the film as a potential directing vehicle.
Garden gnomes scare me!

I want this to be good. Not feeling it. I have the original tv version on dvd...and like most Seuss stuff...it's deep as hell, couched in a tender glove so that kids don't feel it, yet adults do. This looks like it has NONE of the subtlety that made the great Dr's work so deep.
