Ready For Home Alone At Hogwarts?
Paramount developing a comedy chiller called School Of Horrors
Paramount is developing an original script called School Of Horrors, which Deadline New York describes as Home Alone in Hogwarts.
The project comes courtesy of British writer/director team George Kay and Jim (She’s Out Of My League) Field Smith. The story concerns a schoolboy who’s left behind in a haunted school when his parents go on holiday. Paramount plans to shoot the film in 2011.
This could be the start of a whole new trend. Home Alone meets Alien (schoolboy left in a monster-infested spaceship); Home Alone meets Night In The Museum (schoolboy left stranded in a one-idea franchise); Home Alone meets St Trinians (schoolboy left alone in his own tawdry fantasies); Home Alone meets Being John Malkovich (schoolboy rattles around inside actor’s brain)… the sequel opportunities are endless.
