...but it's not what you think.
According to Variety the movie will be a
3-D sci-fi horror pic is about a half-human, half-alien creature who embarks on a murderous rampage after his alien mother is abused by two rednecks in the Deep South.
If this really is the plot of the movie then what possible reason can the producers have for naming it Humpty Dumpty? Does the alien hybrid creature suffer a 'great fall' at some point? Do 'all the king's horses and all the king's men' fail to piece him back together?
Anyway, as bizarre as the movie sounds the attached director actually has a bit of pedigree; his name is David R. Ellis and he cut his teeth as second unit director on Master and Commander, Harry Potter and The Matrix Reloaded (which means that he basically directed everything that didn't involve the actors) and directed (love them or hate them) Snakes on a Plane and Final Destination 2. It seems like if anyone can take on a sci-fi horror film based on a children's nursery rhyme, it's this guy.
