Creepy Crawlers are the reason I didn't learn to cook until I was in my mid-twenties. The anti-Easy-Bake Oven left a deep impression in me that anything I cooked should spurt neon green guts when I smashed it under my fist, or it wasn't worth the effort.
I've since grown up, realized my errors, became a productive member of society, and forgot about Creepy Crawlers. But Paramount Players has me punching baked potatoes all over again, since they've bought the film rights to the Creepy Crawlers toy line.
There isn't a writer or director attached or any additional details, but this sounds like a pretty good idea that I have faith will see the light of day.
