Writers Launch A “Garden Gnome Attack”

Chad Damiani and JP Lavin (“Max Steel,” “Geronimo”) have been hired to pen a live-action adaptation of Chuck Sambuchino’s novel “How To Survive A Garden Gnome Attack” for Robert Zemeckis’ Imagemovers and Sony Pictures Animation says Deadline.

The book is described as a “survival guide that will help you prevent, prepare for and ward off an imminent home invasion by the common garden gnome. Once thought of as harmless yard decorations, evidence is mounting that these smiling lawn statues are poised and ready to wreck havoc.”

The intention is to make an edgy PG-13 version with scary gnomes and Zemeckis is developing the film as a potential directing vehicle.
