MGM is in talks to acquire Killer Pizza, an Adam Green (Hatchet, Hatchet II, Frozen) spec script adaptation of the Greg Taylor book about a 14-year old boy who lands a summer job at a pizza joint that is actually a front for a monster hunting enterprise. Sounds like Lover Boy with monsters! Green talked to Bloody about the film last August.
Talks are underway for Rafaella De Laurentiis to produce with 1492 Pictures and CJ Entertainment. 1492 Entertainment’s Chris Columbus brought it to MGM after meeting with the brass there and sensing the studio’s appetite for Gremlins and Goonies-type fare, and Killer Pizza fit that bill.
