Director Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter) is making a movie about killer squirrels. Do you need to know any more? Okay then, here’s the synopsis,
When a young man’s estranged father is killed under suspicious circumstances, he returns home for the first time in years to get to the bottom of the mystery. Hoping to uncover some logical explanation, he instead finds his mom’s sleazy new boyfriend, a natural gas company buying up the town, an angry female sheriff who happens to be his ex-girlfriend, and an army of flesh-eating squirrels hellbent on destroying everything in their path due to an erosion of their food chain as a result of environmental destruction by the gas company.
What goes well with Star Wars? Beer. At least that’s what filmmaker Michael Cox is hoping because this latest project of his is a, “30 minute Australian Star Wars fan film, which answers the question: What would happen if you crossed Star Wars with an Australian beer commercial?” I know, right! Check out the trailer above and look for the complete film to release by the end of September.
