How to Survive a Garden Gnome Attack

Garden Gnome Attack CG animated film in the works

How to Survive a Garden Gnome Attack

A recent report reveals that Robert Zemeckis is planning to make a CG-animated adaptation of Chuck Sambuchino’s “How to Survive a Garden Gnome Attack”, a novel that acts as a survival guide in case a homeowner is caught off guard by a lawn ornament home invasion.

Zemeckis will direct the film under his Imagemovers banners, while the adaptation itself was already optioned by Sony Pictures Animation. Zemeckis and company have hired Chad Damiani and JP Lavin as writers for the project. Regular ImageMovers partners Jack Rapke and Steve Starkey will co-produce the feature with Gotham Group’s Ellen Goldsmith-Vein and Eric Robinson. The writing team’s most recent credited work is Max Steel for Paramount, and the adaptation of the comic book Geronimo for producers Alexandra Milchan and Antonio Moura Santos Jr.

The CG-animated adaptation of How To Survive a Garden Gnome Attack should not be confused with Gnomeo and Juliet, since Zemeckis is planning to make an edgy PG-13 version for “How to survive…” – this means the gnomes for his film will be scary instead of romantic.
