If you were a child of the 90s or know someone who owned a Super Nintendo, you will no doubt have heard of the game, Zombies Ate My Neighbors. The tagline for the game reads, “It happened one typical night in suburbia; Two best friends amongst a sea of teenage angst battle for safety against the mysterious uprising of neighborhood zombies.” This was a game that you could play thousands of times and not get bored with. We have learned that a screenplay, written by John Darko, exists. The film is looking for financiers, although reports are suggesting that all is going well. The movie is a coming of age story that will borrow from the game. Everything points to this being an independent production. So far, Darko will be producing with April Wade and Ahmed al Baker. Look for more details soon.
