'Blackfish' Creators Next Documentary Will Save New York City Rats

The creators of 'Blackfish' now want to produce a documentary on rats.

'Blackfish' will probably go down as one of the most controversial documentaries in history. But creators are now setting their eyes on a feature-length documentary about rats. The new documentary is based on Robert Sullivan's Rats: Observations on the History and Habitat of One of the City's Most Unwanted Inhabitants and will explore these black plague carrying rodents who ravage through your trash, homes, and cities. Over ten million rats live in New York City, and the numbers continue to grow everyday. The new documentary will highlight facts about rats such as their ability to copulate over twenty times a day. The documentary will also include commentary from exterminators, scholars, and garbage men. It will also track the migration of rats from America's cities to rural areas across the United States. The creators' goal is to explore the physiology of the rats as well as examine the sociology of the city that enables them to grow. The production was recently announced at TIFF and is set to begin production early next year. Robert Sullivan said, “I love that (Dakota Group and Submarine) are able to take a theme and explore it to great and reverberating depths. In their hands, Rats will take us to great places.” Where this documentary will take us? I don't know but, it will probably instill a major rat-phobia across America. It will be exciting to see what the creators of 'Blackfish' produce, but they will be facing high expectations.
