While I haven’t been a fan of Robert Zemeciks‘ work in quite a few years (Monster House may have been the last), he’s finally getting behind something that sounds astoundingly cool.
Sony Pictures Animation has optioned the humor book How to Survive a Garden Gnome Attack for Zemeckis to produce. The pic is being developed as an R-rated live-action/CG-hybrid budgeted in the $20 million-30 million range. No screenwriter is attached.
The book by Chuck Sambuchino, “How to Survive a Garden Gnome Attack: Defend Yourself When the Lawn Warriors Strike (And They Will),” is a tongue-in-cheek a survival guide to helps garden gnome-owners prevent, prepare for and ward off an imminent invasion from the menacing lawn statues.
Zemeckis has not committed to direct. For those of you not paying attention, Zemeckis produced Death Becomes Her, The Frighteners, Demon Knight, Bordello of Blood, Contact, House on Haunted Hill, and directed the Back to the Future films.
