What do you get when an Oscar winning visual effects artist teams up with the screenwriter of Daddy Day Care? A monstrous family comedy called The Goblin that’s poised to be the greatest film of its kind since A Gnome Named Norm.
Variety reports that visual effects wizard Charles Gibson, who has won Oscars for his work on Babe and Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest, will make his directorial debut with The Goblin, a family comedy about a suburban family that moves into its new home only to find a curmudgeonly goblin who doesn’t want them there.
The script was penned by Geoff Rodkey, screenwriter of such modern classics as Daddy Day Care, RV, and the remake of The Shaggy Dog. Wonder how that curmudgeonly goblin feels about crappy family comedies?
And somewhere Verne Troyer sits by his phone desperately hoping the producers don’t plan to go with an entirely computer-animated creature.
