First, let's get this out of the way: Yup, they're actually making another Garbage Pail Kids movie ... in 2012. Not even in 2012 -- this sucker probably won't come out until 2013 or 2014, but just the fact that they're resurrecting this 1980s Cabbage Patch Kids novelty parody item almost 30 years later (and after the first 1987 live-action (!) version tanked) goes to show that the idea factory may be running a tad low on ideas. Michael Eisner's company will finance the feature film, which we imagine will be animated this time around (though there's no official word on that), with popular shorts filmmaker PES (yup, that's his name) directing and Michael Vukadinovich writing the script.
Here's PES' latest short, for those curious about his directing style. This literally just went viral late last week, only a few days before this deal was announced.
Meanwhile, the Garbage Pail Kids are ridiculous, over-the-top, slightly offensive and not at all kid-friendly, so it should be interesting to see what they do with this one. And as they prepare to ramp up the production, here are 8 of our favorite Garbage Pail Kids that we hope are included in the upcoming picture (plus the trailer for the original movie, in case you want to point and laugh at something today).
