Joe Dante Engages in Monster Love

While most of you are still waiting to see his long time coming flick The Hole 3D here in the States, director Joe Dante is already off prepping his next project and getting ready to show his fans a hefty amount of Monster Love.

Dante will be behind Monster Love, a teen horror comedy from writer Greg Pak. Below you’ll find the plot crunch and some early concept art. Dig it!

A werewolf and a vampire fall in love, igniting a war between their respective communities. It’s ROMEO AND JULIET with fangs.

After PETE, a young dogwalker, gets dumped by his girlfriend, his slacker buddies convince him to run naked through the city park. As the moon rises, the boys laugh, howl, and transform…Later, a distraught young woman named MAGGIE is contemplating suicide when she’s surprised by an enormous wolf. She snarls, baring her vampire fangs. The wolf grins and barks: Let’s play!

After a fierce, exhilarating chase through the park, Maggie falls asleep with the wolf — and awakens in a naked young man’s arms. It’s Pete. And love at first sight.

Pete’s werewolf pals and Maggie’s upper-crust vampire clan are furious. And when some mangled bodies are discovered in the woods, Pete and Maggie must fight for their lives while grappling with the awful consequences of loving a monster.

    This sounds terrible but my faith in Dante is so great that I’d rush to see it regardless.

    Is this for real? If so, um…no, please. I know Dante wants to get a film made and released again, but this sounds like a major sellout.
