Watch This: Badass Early Hobo With a Shotgun Footage Hits!
"As promised, here’s a little something to get your juices flowing." Although it was only announced six days ago that Rutger Hauer would star in the feature version of Jason Eisener's Hobo With a Shotgun, and although they've only been shooting for about a week, a short video featuring a smattering of badass footage and our very first look at Hauer as the Hobo has hit the web. This is official, as it comes from the Hobo With a Shotgun blog at hobowithashotgun.com (via our friends from HeyUGuys.co.uk) where their crew has been tracking some of the shooting so far. Apparently they've already run out of (fake) blood only three days in!
Watch the first promo footage from Jason Eisener's Hobo With a Shotgun:
The production quality on this looks fantastic so far, I'm glad Eisener got the financing and money they need to make this as their first feature film. As a reminder, Hobo With a Shotgun is based on a "fake" trailer that Eisener and his Halifax, Nova Scotia-based crew made for a Grindhouse contest during the release of Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino's double feature. The trailer won the top prize and was included as part of the three-hour film in Canada (but not in the US). I don't think I really need to explain the plot (it's about a hobo with a shotgun, damnit!) but this is being directed and was written by Eisener. It's an indie, so expect it to hit some film festivals first (probably Fantastic Fest?) before arriving in art house theaters. Thoughts?
