Timur Bekmambetov to Explore the Dangerous World of Squirrels

1 Comment


I like Timur Bekmambetov. Although “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter” left much to be desired, I’m always curious to see what the director, writer, and producer has to offer. It doesn’t matter how ridiculous or over-the-top the project may initially sound, chances are this fool will be easily separated from his money when it arrives in theaters.

Bekmambetov is all set to produce the upcoming horror flick “Squirrels.” Yes, it’s a genre movie about squirrels. Judging from the teaser poster embedded below, these furry little critters have a hankering for human flesh. As stupid as it sounds, I can’t say that I’m turned off by the idea. Plus, you know, squirrels doing really bad things. Come on.

Here’s what the movie about:

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.

As of this writing, the film hasn’t found a director or a cast. The only thing for certain at the moment is Timur Bekmambetov’s involvement as producer. We’ll keep you up-to-date as soon as anything new about the flick pops up on the radar. For the time being, feast your tender eyes on the sales artwork below. Hopefully you’re as easily amused as I am.

Todd was raised on a steady diet of Hollywood blockbusters, late-night Cinemax programming, and USA’s “Up All Night,” which may explain why his taste in movies is more than a little questionable. When he isn’t providing news and reviews for Beyond Hollywood, he can be found lounging lazily on his couch, perched in front of his television, or dwelling in places where direct sunlight can be easily avoided. He's happily married, in his 30's, and totally badass. If you'd like to reach Todd, you can follow him on Twitter or send him email/scoops to todd (at) beyondhollywood.com.

    Oh, man, sounds like he’s straying into Uwe Boll territory. I guess this means “Twilight Watch” is even farther off in the distance than before
