Walk On The Wild Side
Mutating beasties in latest apocalyptic sci-fi flick

14 July 2004  |  Written by

Every day there seem to be more newspaper stories telling us that GM food is bad for us. Thankfully, with GM-free products flooding our supermarkets, mankind can look forward to a future free from mutant wildlife. Unless, that is, big scary corporations try to play God by creating hordes of genetically engineered super-animals that run amok in an orgy of rapidly mutating horror!!!

That is the premise for The Wild, the latest future-shock, "but what if science is really bad for us?" sci-fi flick in the Warner Brothers canon. Imagine a story lurking between the conceptual cracks of Evolution, The Day After Tomorrow and Resident Evil and you're getting pretty close. The movie will be produced by Road to Perdition screenwriter David Self and Pitch Black producer Tom Engleman.

"The idea is that humankind, or what is left of it, has been evacuated off the planet after a corporation introduced a genetically engineered food crop that caused animals to mutate into these cool but scary creatures," Self said. The film will feature an Earth left swarming with dangerous, rapidly evolving organisms. Director and cast are yet to be announced, but let's hope that Dolly the sheep makes an appearance, perhaps with attitude. And a gun.
