Finally! Someone is giving a fresh go at 'Attack of the Killer Tomatoes!'. According to Mania.com, Kent Nichols and Douglas Sarine, creators of the hit Web series "Ask a Ninja," are writing an adaptation of the 1978 cult monster movie.
Nichols will be take on his helming debut. M. Dal Walton III, behind the remakes of Day of the Dead and Terror Train, acquired the rights from Killer Tomato Entertainment and will produce. Emmett/Furla Films will co-produce.
"'Attack of the Killer Tomatoes!' is the masterwork of a generation," Nichols said. "We can only aspire to recapture that magic."
Plot Concept: After a wave of reports of mysterious attacks involving people and pets being eaten by the traditionally docile fruit, a special government task force is set up to investigate the violent veggies and put a stop to their murderous spree. Included in this crack team are a lieutenant who never goes anywhere without his parachute, an underwater expert who's never out of his scuba gear, and a master of disguise who conceals his appearance by dressing as a black Adolf Hitler.
