New “Garbage Pail Kids” Movie Coming
Another 80′s fad is making a comeback on the silver screen. This time around it’s the Garbage Pail Kids.
According to Deadline, Michael Eisner’s The Tornante Company will finance and produce a new Garbage Pail Kids movie. The movie will be based on the trading cards produced by Topps in the 80′s.
Hatched in 1985, theGarbage Pail Kidslaunched as an irreverent parody of theCabbage Patch Kids(Topps eventually settled a lawsuit brought by Cabbage Patch-maker Coleco). Hatched by Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist Art Spiegelman, the cards became wildly popular enough that they were banned by many schools. There was also a feature done in 1987.
The film will be produced by Toby Ascher, directed by PES (that’s actually the director’s name) and with a script written by Michael Vukadinovich.
