Producer Neil Moritz To Make Animals


Isn't it funny/sad/make you angry when heated discussions you had when you were, like, nine, are made into beyond epic movies? Producer Neil Moritz (I Am Legend, Even Almighty) looks to make a movie called Animals from a script by former lawyer turned hotshot screenwriter Mike Sobel that was just purchased by Columbia. The movie pitch is this: what if all of the world's animals, including pets like kittens and gerbils, turned on us?

The movie would continue the hot switcheroo trend of "Pissed Off Mother Nature vs. Humans" that is at the center of M. Night Shyamalan's The Happening and goes as far back as, I dunno, Man's Best Friend and Funny Farm or was it The Birds (which came first?)? But I'm not sure I've ever seen a movie where every animal ever, sans mascots, sea monkeys and Furries, flashes its fangs, claws and plastic balls in our Earth-ruining direction. Scary stuff, and no doubt, will make for one of the most awesome posters ever. No word on whether Animals will swat a violent paw at cryptozoology.

Discuss: In this very likely hypothetical, what animal would you prefer to do you in? I choose the sloth. Who should direct this madness? I choose Paul Thomas Anderson.
