There’s no place like “Gnome” for Robert Zemeckis

0 Flares 0 Flares ×


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.
