Picture old Gandalf wistfully telling the grand story of how the age of sparkly, sensitive vampires having come to an end, now that the Twilight saga took its last bow (knock on wood). We would ask the wise wizard in our best-but-flimsy Bilbo voice, "What, oh what, may come next, bearded one? Might it be vampires who actually suck blood?"

Perhaps Gandalf would steer us into the direction of Kitchen Sink. The wacky postapocalyptic comedy centers on the unlikely team of teenagers, zombies and vampires fighting-off an alien invasion.

According to Variety, current indie darling (Breathe In, above), (The Perks of Being a Wallflower) and (The Eric Andre Show) are in talks to star in the movie. Not exactly A-list stars, rather fresh talent which should leave enough room for some proper visual effects and production values.

Which brings us to a more general concern you may harbor for the movie.

If you think that Kitchen Sink sounds more like an obscure DVD or Blue Ray release, you just might be mistaken. The screenplay for Kitchen Sink, written by Oren Uziel landed on the prestigious Black List of unproduced screenplays and got good reviews from script- reviewing folk.

In tone and concept it sounds quite similar to the charming British alien invasion flick Attack of the Block, with zombies and hopefully not too sensitive vampires thrown in for good measure.
