News Writer/Director Jordan Rubin on “Critters: A New Binge”; Chiodo Brothers Might Return Published 9 months ago on February 8, 2018 By Nick Bond Share Tweet As we reported back in early January, Verizon’s go90 ordered “Critters: A New Binge” web series, which is heading our way from Blue Ribbon Content (BRC), the Warner Bros. Television Group’s digital studio. The project will begin production in early 2018. The writer/director of the brand new web series Jordan Rubin recently sat down with the folks over at Slash Film, where he spilled some beans on the progress of “Critters: A New Binge”. If this is the first you’ve heard of the show, you can read the plot information below. Synopsis: “The critters return to Earth in search of one of their kin, who was left behind years ago during an earlier mission. They land in Burbank, Calif., where they wreak havoc on a group of high schoolers and their families.” When asked if Critters: The New Binge is a new origin story, Rubin explained to the site where the web series is heading. “I wouldn’t say it’s an origin story because the Critters already exist in the world. They’re returning to Earth because they left one of their offspring behind that they’re trying to find. They’re being chased by the bounty hunters. So it’s a new binge, but it’s not an origin story per se like Batman Begins where you’re seeing from the ground up. This is a world that already exists that we’re joining. It’s sort of a surprise and a reveal. Let’s just say there was an impregnation that happened. There was a seed that was left behind and now that maybe has come to fruition, so they need to find it because they think it will help them maybe take over the galaxy.” Rubin also stated that the web series will have a surprise reveal. Will we see the return of the bounty hunters? Well, it wouldn’t be Critters without them, would it? “It’s sort of its own story. Well, [Leonardo] DiCaprio would be nice to show up in it but I’d say it’s more off of the first one. I felt like the later films started to have more fun and get a little more silly campy in a good way, but I like the darkness of the first one to me. It felt more like it went for it. I know people that still watch it and get scared by it. I don’t get scared by that kind of thing. I’m laughing Yeah, the bounty hunters are always shape shifters, this nebulous face which can become different things. But yeah, two new bounty hunters coming to Earth in their same Terminator type walk and taking on different forms as they encounter them.” What about the Chiodo Brothers? Are they involved with the Critters web series? Rubin is trying to work out a deal to bring them on board to do the special effects. How exciting is that? “We spoke to them and I’m trying to make that work. I think that would be amazing. It’s all a matter of budget and if it can work out with their schedule and where we shoot. If we shoot in Canada… I’m trying to make that work because I met with them and they were great, but we’re speaking to a couple different puppet houses.” Jordan Rubin, Jon Kaplan and Al Kaplan will write and executive produce the new series, with Rubin also directing. Rupert Harvey and Barry Opper, from the original Critters film franchise, are producers. The series is produced by Abominable Pictures in association with Blue Ribbon Content for Verizon.
