Watch: Wacky Trailer for Dax Shepard's Movie 'Brother's Justice'
Wow… this looks crazy! Deadline has debuted the trailer for a film called Brother's Justice that wasn't on my radar until just now. It's an indie comedy starring Dax Shepard as himself, a comedic actor who wants to reinvent himself by becoming an internationally renowned martial arts star, except that not only is he not internationally renowned, but he doesn't have any formal martial arts training. So… this is kind of a big riff on Joaquin Phoenix's I'm Still Here in a way, where he tries to do something he's not good at. There's a LOT of cameo appearances and it doesn't look half bad. Watch the trailer below and let us know what you think!
Watch the trailer for David Palmer and Dax Shepard's Brother's Justice:
Motivated by Box Office statistics, actor Dax Shepard (Idiocracy), with the help of his buddy Nate, makes the decision to leave comedy to pursue his dream of becoming an international Martial Arts action star.
Brother's Justice is co-directed by filmmaker David Palmer (of the documentary Stripped: Greg Friedler's Naked Las Vegas) and actor Dax Shepard (Idiocracy, Zathura: A Space Adventure, "Parenthood"), both making their feature debuts with this film. The screenplay was written by Shepard, so he really is behind it completely. The film just premiered at the Austin Film Festival this month, but doesn't have a distributor yet, so we're not sure when it will hit theaters. In the meantime, check out the poster from the photo above.

I thought it looked kinda funny. I really like all his friends/actors that were in it with him. I'd definitely rent it. It looks like it might go straight to dvd anyway.
