Spread the word!

In a very interesting move, it looks like Warner Bros. Home Entertainment and Syfy are bringing back the characters from the old ‘1960s kids show ‘The Banana Splits’ for a horror film.

Deadline reports that the animal characters Bingo, Fleegle, Drooper, and Snorky will return in an original film this year from “Blue Ribbon Content, Warner Bros Television Group’s digital studio, via a Warner Bros. Home Entertainment release that will be followed by the television debut on Syfy.”

Dani Kind (Workin’ Moms), Finlay Wojtak-Hissong (The Kindness Of Strangers), Romeo Carere (Don’t Talk To Irene), Steve Lund (Haven), and Sara Canning (A Series Of Unfortunate Events) star. Danishka Esterhazy directs, with Jed Elinoff and Scott Thomas writing the script. Check out the synopsis below:

“A boy named Harley and his family (brother Austin, mother Beth, and father Mitch) attend a taping of The Banana Splits TV show, which is supposed to be a fun-filled birthday for young Harley and business as usual for Rebecca, the producer of the series.

“But things take an unexpected turn — and the body count quickly rises. Can Harley, his mom and their new pals safely escape?”
