Mad genius Timur Bekmambetov has a new film in the works, and no, it’s not the conclusion of his awesome “Watch” trilogy or a sequel to “Wanted”.
The next film on the slate of this “visionary director” is Squirrels, if he has his way!
This one is so important to him that he has just released this pre-production trailer for the film he wants to make…
The synopsis reads like this :
When a young man’s estranged father is killed under suspicious circumstances, he returns home for the first time in years to get to the bottom of the mystery. Hoping to uncover some logical explanation, he instead finds his mom’s sleazy new boyfriend, a natural gas company buying up the town, an angry female sheriff who happens to be his ex-girlfriend, and an army of flesh-eating squirrels hellbent on destroying everything in their path due to an erosion of their food chain as a result of environmental destruction by the gas company.
And if it looks anything like his previous films (and the awesome teaser above, for that matter), I am sold!
What do you guys think?
Are killer squirrels too much of a stretch for a horror film?
After all we have been hunting and eating them for years…
