Hold On To Your Nuts And Do Not Feed The SQUIRRELS

Todd Brown, Founder and Editor
What next for Wanted and Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter director Timur Bekmambetov? That's a good question, actually, the director-producer maintaining an active slate in both roles in both Hollywood and Russia but one thing he's got brewing on the production side is horror-comedy Squirrels.

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.
Though there is no word yet on who will direct or star, Bekmambetov's Bazalev's production company have produced a fabulous promo reel for the project which was apparently released by sales company Red Sea Media (whose official site currently appears to be squatted upon by a porn site) and is now spreading online in Russia. Check it out - all the dialogue is in English - below.
