Audiences saw what producing team The Bandito Brothers could do with Act of Valor's $12 million dollar budget. The film's $80 million dollar ride at the box-office proved audiences are willing to look past some flaws and ignore critics for something original on screen; all with no name actors occupying the credits.
It's no wonder studios are clamoring since the trailer leaked for their new action thriller The Prototype. With $40 million - more than triple the budget of their previous effort - and what looks to be a more promising story from writer/director Andrew Will, this film could very well be the next District 9. Will, along with his producing partner Shawn Wallace, have been working with Cantina Creative and the Bandito Bros in scouting and designing tests for the action scenes.
The synopsis given on IMDb is slightly more spoilerish than the trailer is, so I'll put it underneath the trailer if you want to read it. The trailer looks pretty amazing. It definitely took me for surprise once the action kicked in. Check it out and let us know if this is up your alley.
