Director of "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" Planning a Movie About Squirrels Who Are Angry Because of Fracking

Timur Bekmambetov, who has directed such films as Wanted and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, has turned his attention to his next project:  Squirrels.

Here is a synopsis:
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.
And here is the (incredibly stupid) "pre-production sales trailer" that was used to shop the idea to production companies.

Apparently, that was effective enough to win some hearts:  Red Sea Media picked up the rights and the movie is going to be made.

Move over, Sharknado.  The squirrels have watched Gasland and Gasland Part II, and they are ticked off.
