Zombieland Duo Whack A Granny For New Movie
Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick aren’t the type of men to let the dust settle beneath their feet. Not content with writing both Zombieland and Deadpool, the duo are now taking on their first director gig with Doc and Howie.
The movie, originally titled Doc and Howie Whack A Granny, came to most people’s attentions when it appeared on last year’s Black List of the best unproduced screenplays floating around Hollywood. Written by TV scripter Steve Leff, the story centers around the titular heroes accidentally being responsible for the death of an elderly neighbor when they fail to carry her groceries upstairs; when her death leads them to meet her hot granddaughters, the pair struggle to keep their part in her demise secret.
The movie is likely to start production next summer.
