Jonah Hill is ready to make the leap from actor to feature director according to Deadline. The star has already tried his hand at writing and producing, so directing seems to be the next logical step. The site claims that he’s eyeing a comedy called The Kitchen Sink to make his big debut and the story will center on vampires and aliens. No, your eyes are not deceiving you: vampires and aliens!
The Kitchen Sink follows a high school-aged vampire, zombie and human as they try to save their town from invading aliens. The screenplay was one of the top picks on the 2010 Black List, catching the attention of producer Matt Tolmach. You might be asking yourself, why is a film about horror creatures called The Kitchen Sink? Apparently, it’s supposed to reference the fact that every movie villain known to man is being used in the film. Get it?
To be honest, the premise sounds absolutely ridiculous but it could work depending on how they execute it. This isn’t that far off from the set up of the TV show “Being Human,” which centers on a vampire, a werewolf, and a ghost. The writing on there is amazing and it’s pretty entertaining, therefore we can see it working if the script is as good as everyone says it is.
What do you think of the premise of The Kitchen Sink? Too outlandish or hilarious?
