After Robert Zemeckis' $150 million "Mars Needs Moms" bombed in theaters and his "Yellow Submarine" film was quickly cancelled, the filmmaker found himself in need of a project to get to the top. And he has just found it.
Zemeckis is planning to produce a big screen adaptation of Chuck Sambuchino's "How to Survive a Garden Gnome Attack" book. The new movie will be a blend of CG/live-action, R-rated and with a budget between $20 and $30 million.
Plot: "How to Survive a Garden Gnome Attack" is the only comprehensive survival guide that will help you prevent, prepare for, and ward off an imminent home invasion by the common garden gnome. Once thought of as harmless yard decorations, evidence is mounting that these smiling lawn statues are poised and ready to wreck havoc.
When the publisher was promoting this book, they released a trailer for it. Watch that trailer below.
They're wrecking havoc? So no havoc then they're like peace making gnomes? Anyway's spelling mistakes aside I'm gonna say the complete opposite thing from yesterday and say why ARE you making this R rated?
Who's the target audience grannys! Zemekis you shameless bastard start making real films again get away from this animated trollop.

I have to wonder. What do other people in the world think when they see American's making sh*t like this?
Do they think, oh look, some more stupid gringo morons making mindless garbage, or do they too go, oh cool, it's a plastic killer gnome movie so you know that's going to be great cinema?
And how the f*ck do you go, in the space of a few years, from making BTTF to some utter sh*t like this?
I know this is just some insipid promo video for the idiotic book, but why would the man who put his name on the greatest trilogy of all time waste his and my motherf*cking time translating a book about a killer garden ornament into film? Wasn't Chucky more than enough?
Will we see more of the dead, wooden eyes we got from his other CGI disasters like that mess Polar Express and Christman Carol?
And WTF has happened to Zemeckis' brain? Did he get mad cow disease? Does he have ever-growing holes in his cerebrum? Has his medulla oblongata left the f*cking building?
