Some may criticize the fact that we’ve become a culture that’s obsessed with mash-ups, others may revel in the glory that comes with this—mostly because it allows us to receive juicy bits of entertainment such as Kitchen Sink. This “genre mash-up” finds vampires, humans and zombies all in the same world, forming a social hierarchy of sorts. As if the premise alone isn’t enough to sell viewers, the upcoming action-horror-comedy just bulked up an already impressive cast by adding Bob Odenkirk and Patton Oswalt.
Kitchen Sink will center around three characters—a representative from the humans, zombies and vampires—as they attempt to restore harmony to society and defend the world from an alien invasion. Seriously. Deadline reports that Oswalt, Odenkirk and Ian Roberts (Upright Citizens Brigade, Arrested Development, Reno 911), recently joined Joan Cusack, Keegan-Michael Key, Ed Westwick, Vanessa Hudgens and Denis Leary to round out a stellar cast.
Robbie Pickering will be directing the film, written by Oren Uziel. Jonah Hill will serve as executive producer with Matt Tolmach and Ron Schmidt producing. Tolmach states that “Kitchen Sink has all the chaos and carnage of a classic genre movie, but at its heart it’s a comedy about three kids just trying to survive the pain and awkwardness of high school, where every day feels apocalyptic.”
The film will begin shooting soon in Los Angeles with an expected Oct. 2014 release date.
