The last time there was anything to talk about regarding the Robert Zemeckis live action adaptation of Chuck Sambuchino’s How to Survive a Garden Gnome Attack was this past April, and now that writers are attached, Zemeckis himself might direct instead of just producing. Read on for details.
According to Deadline Chad Damiani and JP Lavin have just been hired to adapt the book for Zemeckis and his Imagemovers banner.
The film will be live action (the garden gnomes will be animated) and based on the Chuck Sambuchino novel, which was optioned by Sony Pictures Animation. Zemeckis and his ImageMovers partners Jack Rapke and Steve Starkey are producing with The Gotham Group’s Ellen Goldsmith-Vein and Eric Robinson.
The book is a survival guide, preparing the homeowner on the off chance the lawn ornaments stage a home invasion. The intention is to make an edgy PG-13 version so the gnomes will be scary. Zemeckis is developing the film as a potential directing vehicle.
