New GARBAGE PAIL KIDS Feature in Development

Valerie Vomit, Foul Phil, Messy Tessie and Windy Winston heading back to the cinemas.

Disney CEO Michael Eisner’s new production banner, The Tornante Company, is set to finance and produce the development of an all new feature film based on the 1980’s trading card series, Garbage Pail Kids (known as The Garbage Gang in Ireland).

The brainchild of Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist Art Spiegelman, the twisted and crude series was launched as an irreverent parody of the Cabbage Patch Kids dolls. Its commercial success led to a live-action feature in 1987.

According to Deadline, award winning short film and commercial director PES will be directing the feature with a screenplay coming from Michael Vukadinovich (‘The Three Misfortunes of Geppetto’). PES is best known for his short films Fresh Guacamole, Roof Sex and Western Spaghetti. You can check out a sample of his work below, followed by a trailer for the first Garbage Pail Kids movie.
