Well, this certainly qualifies as horrific. I know you’re all familiar with the Topps line of trading cards but have you actually seen The Garbage Pail Kids Movie? Holy sh*t is it awful. And weird. And kinda scary. But mostly it’s the kind of gross that makes you want to throw your TV out the window and move somewhere cold, clean and untouched. The Yukon, maybe. So it comes as a great surprise that it’s being remade. And that Michael Eisner, the former CEO of Disney, is behind it. The film will be written by Michael Vukadinovich and directed by PES (to be fair, I wouldn’t want to direct this under my own name either).
Per Deadline, “Michael Eisner’s The Tornante Company will finance and produce development of a feature film based on Garbage Pail Kids, the trading card line published by Topps. Eisner bought the card company in 2007 and this is his first feature spinoff project. Toby Ascher is producing. PES (that is what he goes by) will direct the film, which will be scripted by Michael Vukadinovich, who most recently set his Black List script ‘The Three Misfortunes Of Geppetto’ at Fox and Shawn Levy’s ’21 Laps’.”
