So Timur Bekmambetov’s killer squirrel movie has a pre-production trailer, which was most likely used at Cannes to muster some financial report.
The official synopsis is as follows:
“When a young man’s estranged father is killed under suspicious circumstances, he returns home for the first time in years to get to the bottom of the mystery. Hoping to uncover some logical explanation, he instead finds his mom’s sleazy new boyfriend, a natural gas company buying up the town, an angry female sheriff who happens to be his ex-girlfriend, and an army of flesh-eating squirrels hellbent on destroying everything in their path due to an erosion of their food chain as a result of environmental destruction by the gas company.”
The screenplay for Squirrels was written by Daniel Antoniazzi and Ben Shiffrin, based on an idea by Bekmambetov.
No director is attached yet.
