According to Deadline New York, Michael Eisner’s The Tornante Company is making a feature film based on the Garbage Pail Kids, the Topps trading card line of delightfully disgusting trading cards that parodied Cabbage Patch Kids. Short film director PES (Fresh Guacamole) will direct the film that has the screenplay written by Michael Vukadinovich. This is apparently not directly related to the 1987 live-action film flop, The Garbage Pail Kids Movie. In 2007, former Disney CEO Eisner purchased Topps.
For nostalgia sake, here’s the trailer for the 1987 film, The Garbage Pail Kids Movie (no trailer available yet for the new film):
