Sony’s Comedy Really Does Have Everything But the ‘Kitchen Sink’

Patton Oswalt

Sony Pictures is setting comedians Patton Oswalt (pictured above; Odd Thomas), Bob Odenkirk (below; “Breaking Bad”) and Ian Roberts (Anchorman) to round out the cast of Kitchen Sink, the genre mash-up that also stars Nicholas Braun, Mackenzie Davis, newcomer Josh Fadem, Joan Cusack Keegan-Michael Key, Ed Westwick, Vanessa Hudgens and Denis Leary. Deadline reports that the pic, directed by Robbie Pickering from a script by Oren Uziel, is just getting underway in Los Angeles.

The action takes place in Dilford, a place where vampires were at the top of the social order, zombies were at the bottom, and the humans were in the middle. This all goes awry and it’s a battle, and it’s up to three reps of those groups to restore harmony.

Matt Tolmach is producing with Ron Schmidt and Jonah Hill exec producing.

Said Tolmach: “Kitchen Sink has all the chaos and carnage of a classic genre movie, but at its heart it’s a comedy about three kids just trying to survive the pain and awkwardness of high school, where every day feels apocalyptic.

    oy-freakin-vey, this will undoubtedly be a direct to dvd release, I can see it now. To be fair I’m not saying that this is going to suck on every conceivable level….but look at the track record with America Film mixing “comedy” with “horror” it’s a little exacerbating.
