Christmas is just days away, but it’s never too early to start thinking about movies for next Christmas! How about this one, from the weird pile: “Zombie Elves: The Movie.” No, we’re not kidding. They’re talking about a live action feature, with casting now for actors under five feet tall. The storyline, per casting sources: “All hell breaks loose in the North Pole when Santa’s elves get transformed into flesh-eating zombies.” So Hollywood.
On a much nicer note, there’s “Merry In-Laws,” set to shoot in Calgary starting late January. It’s about a “practical, no-nonsense astronomer and single mom” who becomes engaged to a guy named Peter Claus. She’s in for a shock when it’s time to meet his parents — guess who.
Maybe these writers have been dipping into the spiked eggnog a little early?
