Dreamworks Animation to Adapt Gil's All Fright Diner by A. Lee Martinez

Gil's All Fright Diner by A. Lee Martinez

Variety is reporting that Dreamworks Animation will film an adaptation of Gil's All Fright Diner, the 2006 debut comic / thriller / fantasy / horror novel by A. Lee Martinez. Barry Sonnenfeld (Men in Black) is set to direct.

About Gil's All Fright Diner: Welcome to Gil's All Night Diner, where zombie attacks are a regular occurrence and you never know what might be lurking in the freezer ...

Duke and Earl are just passing through Rockwood county in their pick-up truck when they stop at the Diner for a quick bite to eat. They aren't planning to stick around-until Loretta, the eatery's owner, offers them $100 to take care of her zombie problem. Given that Duke is a werewolf and Earl's a vampire, this looks right up their alley. But the shambling dead are just the tip of a particularly spiky iceberg. Seems someone's out to drive Loretta from the Diner, and more than willing to raise a little Hell on Earth if that's what it takes. Before Duke and Earl get to the bottom of the Diner's troubles, they'll run into such otherworldly complications as undead cattle, an amorous ghost, a jailbait sorceress, and the terrifying occult power of pig-latin. And maybe -- just maybe -- the End of the World, too.
