Ask A Ninja guys

If you ever doubted that there was a future in podcasting, then doubt no more.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Douglas Sarine (L) and Kent Nichols (R), the creators of the hit video podcast Ask a Ninja, are making the jump to the big screen. The two are writing an adaptation of the 1978 cult monster movie Attack of the Killer Tomatoes!, which Nichols is set to direct:

Attack of the Killer Tomatoes! is the masterwork of a generation,” Nichols said. “We can only aspire to recapture that magic.”

No changes to the original plot have been revealed, but it still is expected to revolve around killer tomatoes.

Nichols and Sarine’s satirical “Ninja” shorts have garnered more than 80 million Web views and won best series at the 2006 YouTube Video Awards. Their “Ninja” commentator has appeared on National Public Radio and VH1’s “Best Week Ever.”

The original “Tomatoes” spawned the Fox Kids Network’s “ATV” cartoon series and the feature sequel “Return of the Killer Tomatoes,” which helped launch George Clooney’s career.

Nichols and Sarine are repped by UTA and John Elliott of Mosaic Media Group.
