Timur Bekmambetov’s killer squirrel movie has promo trailer

By / 08.20.13

Squirrels are squirrely little bastards that I’m always convinced are plotting something. Producer Timur Bekmambetov agrees because he’s currently trying to make a movie about killer squirrels.

Timur Bekmambetov, for those unacquainted, directed Wanted and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter as well as the more relevant but lesser known movies Night Watch and Day Watch. That means that while it should be a SyFy original, it’s most likely going to be a semi-serious attempt at a horror movie about squirrels. Timur is set to produce while allegedly handing over directing duties to Machete’s Ethan Maniquis. The tagline was right. “Hold onto your nuts!”

Official synopsis from Bleeding Cool:

When a young man’s estranged father is killed under suspicious circumstances, he returns home for the first time in years to get to the bottom of the mystery. Hoping to uncover some logical explanation, he instead finds his mom’s sleazy new boyfriend, a natural gas company buying up the town, an angry female sheriff who happens to be his ex-girlfriend, and an army of flesh-eating squirrels hellbent on destroying everything in their path due to an erosion of their food chain as a result of environmental destruction by the gas company.
