Hobo With A Shotgun Will Star Rutger Hauer

You might not like Grindhouse movies but you have to admit, they have the best titles.

Back in 2007, in the promotional hoo-ha for Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez’s Grindhouse double feature, the SXSW film festival ran a competition for fake trailers to run before the movie. Jason Eisner and co won with their entry called Hobo With A Shotgun that followed a homeless man who cleans up the streets by killing drug dealers, paedophiles and corrupt cops.

Ain’t It Cool News are reporting that the movie starts filming tomorrow with Blade Runner star Rutger Hauer in the title role. The whole Grindhouse experience has proved pretty popular as Machete, a fake trailer made by Rodriguez is also in production.

It sounds like a fun project but it’s not the entry I would have chosen – I’m still waiting for someone to make Dead Noon.

Check out the trailer for Hobo With A Shotgun and let me know what you think.
