Robert Zemeckis Knows How to Survive a Garden Gnome Attack


Robert Zemeckis is making plans to adapt the humorous defensive manual, How to Survive a Garden Gnome Attack, Variety reports.

The book, released last year, is described by the author, Chuck Sambuchino, as follows:

“How to Survive a Garden Gnome Attack” is the only comprehensive survival guide that will help you 1) prevent, 2) prepare for, and 3) ward off an imminent home invasion by the common garden gnome. Once thought of as harmless yard decorations, evidence is mounting that these smiling lawn statues are poised and ready to wreck havoc.

The danger is real. And it’s here.

As a certified Garden Gnome Defense Expert (GGDE accreditation, University of Phoenix), I have developed a proven system—Assess, Protect, Defend, Apply—for safeguarding property, possessions, and loved ones. Strategies include step-by-step instructions for gnome-proofing the average dwelling, recognizing and interpreting the signs of a gathering hoard, and—in the event that a secured perimeter is breached—confronting and combating the attackers at close range.

Zemeckis is set to produce through his ImageMovers Digital, blending CGI with live action in a take is said to be adult-oriented. He could foreseeably direct as well, but no decision has been made as of yet.
