Chris Columbus-Produced Chupacabra Movie Heading to Netflix

Netflix logo

Deadline revealed this week that Netflix has tapped Chris Columbus to produce a family-friendly film based on that lovable goat-sucker of Mexican folklore, the Chupacabra.

“The film follows a teenager, who while visiting his family in Mexico, gains an unlikely companion when he discovers a young chupacabra hiding in his grandpa’s shed. In order to save the mythical creature, Alex and his cousins must embark on the adventure of a lifetime.”

Columbus is of course well known for his work on Home Alone, Gremlins, and Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, perhaps giving us a clue about the film’s tone.

Jonas Cuarón, son of Alfonso Cuarón, is also set to direct.

Here’s hoping we eventually get a family-friendly version of everyone’s favorite bundle of flying entrails, Penanggalan.

Just dripping in family friendly goodness, just like the Chupacabra.

Oh wait, that’s blood.
