Robert Zemeckis will help produce a partly CG-animated adaptation of the humor book How to Survive a Garden Gnome Attack for Sony Pictures Animation.
Zemeckis’ ImageMovers studio will produce the R-rated film with the Gotham Group. Budgeted at between $20 million and $30 million, the movie will also include live action. No screenwriter has been hired as yet.
Zemeckis has not committed to direct his latest film. Reportedly, he’s considering his options after Mars Needs Moms — which he helped direct — tanked at the box office and Disney decided to halt his planned remake of Yellow Submarine. He remains a producer on DreamWorks’ upcoming movie Real Steel, starring Hugh Jackman.
