'Raiders of the Lost Ark' Remake Needs Kickstarter for One Last Scene
There's already a book on shelves and a documentary adaptation in the works about Chris Strompolos and Eric Zala, two kids who decided to put together a homemade adaptation of Raiders of the Lost Ark when they were kids. The film has been shown at some special screenings around the country, but catching it has been pretty damn hard. However, the film has never been 100% completed because it's missing the infamous airplane scene featuring Indiana Jones facing off with a tough, bald Nazi mechanic before meeting a bloody end. But now Strompolos and Zala are trying to finish it, and they've asked Kickstarter for help.
If you're not aware of Raiders of the Lost Ark: The Adaptation, here's the Kickstarter video to explain:
And as for why they've decided to shoot this scene now, well the page explains:
As a solo project, and also as a driving set piece for Jeremy Coon’s documentary, the idea was born to return to the Mississippi Gulf Coast 25 years later to finally complete the Raiders Adaptation by reuniting the cast and tackling and recreating the classic action sequence.
Yeah, shooting this final scene will definitely make for a great climax in the documentary, maybe even with a montage of getting all the pieces together to shoot it. If you check out the Kickstarter page, you can find more information about the hype around this ambitious homemade passion project along with a plan for how they intend to pull off the airplane scene. And for those of you eager to own this project, if you back this final endeavor with the right amount, you'll get an actual DVD copy of the film complete with the finished airplane scene inserted into the film. Feel free to join us in supporting this fun project right here. Cool?
