Magnet Releasing has picked up U.S. distribution rights to the hardcore grindhouse style genre movie Hobo With a Shotgun, which is set to premiere at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival, and I'm looking forward to seeing it.
The movie was directed by Jason Eisener, and stars film legend Rutger Hauer (Blind Fury) as a badass, homeless vigilante who blows away crooked cops, pedophile Santas, and other scumbags with a pump-action shotgun.
As you know by now, the film is based on a fun, violence filled fake trailer made for Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez's Grindhouse film.
A vigilante homeless man pulls into a new city and finds himself trapped in urban chaos, a city where crime rules and where the city's crime boss reigns. Seeing an urban landscape filled with armed robbers, corrupt cops, abused prostitutes and even a pedophile Santa, the Hobo goes about bringing justice to the city the best way he knows how - with a 20-gauge shotgun. Mayhem ensues when he tries to make things better for the future generation.
Congratulations to Eisener and his crew! In case you missed it check out the trailer for the film below:
