Whether it’s in movies, TV shows or video games, the undead are eating our delicious brains everywhere we look. Personally, I’m experiencing serious zombie-fatigue, and the fact that Air Bud’s buddies are getting into the genre is not helping.
Horror screenwriter E.L. Katz sold Zombie Pet Shop to The Animation Picture Company, to be made as a 3D (aka ManditoryVision) feature animated cartoon. You may not know The Animation Picture Company from such recent Garfield direct-to-DVD movies as: Garfield Gets Real, Garfield Fun Fest, Garfield Pet Force and Garfield Dicks Around In CG Because People Will Buy Any DVD With Garfield On The Cover. Here’s the plot of their upcoming film:
A mysterious plague [sweeps] through a mall pet shop, turning all of the animals into zombies. An ordinary pug named Joey must come to the rescue to find the antidote that will save his four-legged friends, as well as the humans that might take them home.
Okay, but will Garfield make a cameo as a fat, undead smart-ass cat with a hunger for lasagna a la brains? That’s what I wanna know: news about Garfield’s potential involvement.
