Here we go vampire, zombie and alien fans. “The Kitchen Sink” covers all of the anomalies listed. Unbelievably, according to Reelz.com, Jonah was to helm “The Kitchen Sink,” but it seems that he has pulled himself from the role. “The Kitchen Sink” will now be helmed by Robbie Pickering and is due in theaters on October 17, 2014. Perfect timing too – right before Halloween.
In this goofy comedy, we have a teenager who collaborates talents with vampires and zombies to form an alliance in fighting off some invading aliens. This should be good or it could be so campy that it’s horrible. Either way, I’m sure it will have a cult following.
Oren Uziel is the one who penned the crazy idea. So far, the cast will consist of Nicholas Braun, Mackenzie Davis and Josh Fadem.
Matthew Tolmach is the producer of “The Kitchen Sink.” Appropriate name for a film that will have everything but the kitchen sink in the way of characters.
Tolmach grabbed up “The Kitchen Sink” script in January. Until then, the script was sitting around without an owner in a pile up of the 2010 Black List of unproduced screenplays.
Tolmach purchased the rights after he quit his job as a Columbia Pictures executive to become a producer. Tolmach tells Deadline that he was surprised that nobody else had purchased the script. He went into further detail about the script:
I love high school movies and sparked to the authenticity of these characters. It’s more in the spirit of “The Breakfast Club” than anything but you get an idea of the title in an early scene where two kids are running from zombies. Those zombies suddenly are attacked by vampires. Just when they are all facing off, there’s a bright light overhead. You realize the aliens have landed and these groups have to band together, suppress the urge to kill each other and it become thematically the enemy of my enemy is my friend. That makes it different than your usual zombie, vampire or alien movie. I know from experience how quickly scripts either get bought or not and it often has no bearing on whether they’re good or not. This one is like the talented kid passed over in the first round of the draft. Thank goodness for the Black List.
Watch for the new comedy, “The Kitchen Sink” in theaters on Friday, October 17, 2014.
