Quentin Tarantino Presents Hell Ride Poster Debut
I don't actually get to see Quentin Tarantino's Hell Ride until Monday, January 21st, at its midnight world premiere at Sundance. But until then, the buzz shall continue to build. ShockTillYouDrop.com has run the full poster for Hell Ride and it features an awesome mural of sorts. The film is Larry Bishop's biker exploitation flick about two rival biker gangs and I am excited as hell to see what he's cooked up with Michael Madsen, Vinnie Jones, and Dennis Hopper also starring.
Stay tuned for more updates on Hell Ride, including our review late Monday night and an interview with genuine badass Michael Madsen. For now, check out this poster! You can also check out some first look photos from Hell Ride as well.
A raucous throwback to the days of the Sergio Leone spaghetti western, with a heaping helping of testosterone-fueled chopper action thrown into the mix, writer/director Larry Bishop takes on a third role as Pistolero, head honcho of the Victors, a group of badass bikers who are out to avenge the murder of one of their members at the hands of the 666ers, a rival gang whose actions live up to their hellish moniker. Along with his cohorts, the Gent (deviously portrayed by Michael Madsen) and the mysterious Comanche (Eric Balfour), Pistolero aims to take down the Deuce and Billy Wings, menacing leaders of the 666ers, but a mutiny looms on the horizon when his commitment to profit is questioned by a few of his fellow Victors. An even larger story unravels when previously unknown information about Comanche resurrects ghosts from Pistolero's past.
Biker Larry Bishop wrote and directed the film with Quentin Tarantino riding along as producer. Hell Ride doesn't have a release date set by The Weinstein Company yet, but will arrive at some point in 2008.
