James Gunn finds Pets

Slither may not have set the box office on fire, but that isn’t stopping writer/director James Gunn from jumping back in the cinematic saddle.

He’s been saying on his blog for months that he’s had another comedy cooking away in his noggin (among other things), and now he’s sold the script Pets to New Regency.

The story will find a man snatched by aliens who have decided he’ll make a great addition to their family - as a pet. Hopefully Gunn might have a bit more luck this time around, especially as he has Ben Stiller’s Red Hour Productions backing him.
