Ho Ho Uh-Oh

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?
