Broken Lizard’s Paul Soter (Watching the Detectives) tells MTV that Johnny Knoxville (“Jackass”) may star in his next film, an untitled horror-thriller that he wrote and hopes to direct.
Soter says the film is “about a small Colorado town and there’s a forest fire nearby and it ignites these lost barrels of toxic who knows what. It blows this toxic ash into town and makes all the dogs go apesh*t. The lead guy is in a custody battle for his son and has him for the weekend. He’s a firefighter and drops off his son at school and goes into town to fight the fire when he realizes what’s going on. So he’s on one side of town. His eight-year-old boy is on the other side of town. He’s got to get through this army of rabid dogs to get his son.”
