Zombies Ate My Movie!

Firstshowing.net is reporting that the SNES cult classic Zombies Ate My Neighbors is getting the big-screen treatment. According to preliminary reports, the rom-zom-com will be written by John Darko and is currently in pre-production (slang for "we need to get some cash to make this happen"). The plot is rumored to center around high school teens Zeke and Julie, who have to fight off some zombies when their neighborhood is invaded. The game itself is tough to categorize because it features elements of puzzle, shooter, and maze games rolled into one, but ZAMN the movie is being billed as a coming-of-age high school film.

When I heard this news over our tips wire, I leaped for joy. Then I thought for a bit, and realized this could be disastrous. Lets start with the fact that the movie is probably two to three years out, minimum. Then add in the reality that they are most likely looking at B-stars for the film (its indie), and probably a second-rate post house, and things start to go sour. After all, how many awful video game movies have been made through much bigger studios with a much larger stable of resources? That being said, ...

After all, how many awful video game movies have been made through much bigger studios with a much larger stable of resources? That being said, Shaun of the Dead and Home Alone didn't have huge budgets, and they were grand movies that, thematically, might be good inspirations to ZAMN's director. I say just throw it to SyFy and call it a day. Problem solved.
