“Hey mom there’s something in the backroom… I hope it’s not the creatures from above…”
Native San Diegan, Tom Delonge, announces that he will be directing a sci-fi film about UFO’s and skateboarding!
Based on DeLonge’s graphic novel series, Strange Times, The Hollywood Reporter quotes DeLonge describing the film as:
“a rebellious group of San Diego skateboarders, who take it upon themselves to investigate extreme paranormal activity around town, only to embark on an adventure that they could have never imagined.”
“I grew up in Southern California as a disaffected young skateboarder who broke the occasional law or five, and I was always dreaming about the world around me, obsessively looking for the more unusual and imaginative experiences that life has to offer”
“That’s the inspiration behind Strange Times, which is about the tribe of broken youth and the restless spirit that inspired me to form Blink-182 and seek out adventure.”
Production on the movie will begin this year.
