HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN feature starts shooting Monday... and Quint knows who the movie Hobo will be!!!

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. If you're like me you've anxiously awaited word on the rumored HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN feature... it's okay if you don't know what I'm talking about. For those who didn't get caught up in the fake exploitation trailer craze surrounding GRINDHOUSE, there was a contest held which encouraged people to make their own Grindhouse trailers. Jason Eisener's HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN was the winner and he deserved it. If you've delved into '70s exploitation at all you'll feel the trailer was a chip off the old, funky block. Here it is if you missed it:

Ever since he won the Grindhouse trailer competition there was talk of a feature version of HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN and now it's finally happening. I originally got a tip-off from a spy named "Jehan Quadi" that HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN was filming in Halifax and that Eisener had cast a certain known actor as the Hobo. So I decided to test the waters and see if I could get a confirmation. That I did, from Eisener himself. Not only does the movie begin shooting Monday, but we know for sure who has been cast as the Hobo. Unfortunately, the original Hobo, Dave Brunt, will not be returning in the role. However they found a hell of a great replacement. Filling the sole-flapping shoes and carrying the 12 gauge will be the man, the myth, the fuckin' legend... Mr. Rutger Hauer!

Like I said, perfect casting, right? I hope he incorporates the insane gravely voice that Brunt gave the character in the trailer in some way. Don't feel too bad for Brunt, though. He'll also be making an appearance in the film as a cop... and if I had to guess, he'll probably be a crooked one that ends up at the business end of the Hobo's shotgun! Ya' heard it here! What are your thoughts? -Quint Follow Me On Twitter

    Halifax ehhhh?

    by Box_Bruceleitner

    I hope it'll actually be set in Halifax and that the RCMP will be well represented, that'll just add to the awesomeness cred of this movie. Ellen Page and Sidney Crosby should make cameos as well.

    Rutger is a God

    by DC Films

    This is the kind of movie that might of not been on my radar. But with Rutger in it it's now the movie i'm looking forward to most this year.<p><p>He's the greatest Bond villain that never was. His turns in The Hitcher and Bladerunner alone make him a legend (he wrote the his replicant's end-speech - some of the most memorable lines in cinema).<p><p>Confessions of a Dangerous Mind & Sin City proved he still has it, so it's a real sin he hasn't been given far more of these quality parts.<p><p>I wish him the best for the shoot and hope the material does him justice.

    by Nerd Rage

    I love me some hobo with a shotgun. I am sad that Dave Brunt won't return for the title role. Rutger Hauer is a legend but he doesn't have the small, underdog body frame that made Brunt sympathetic. Also Brunt's not famous and looks like he stepped out of the 70's so it gave the grindhouse trailer some authenticity. Brunt pretty much makes the trailer what it is. He's perfect. Replacing him to increase the star power of Hobo with a Shotgun is a terrible mistake. I'd prefer the feature go direct-to-video if it meant getting Brunt back.

  • April 18, 2010, 6:56 a.m. CST

    I'd prefer a slew of grindhouse films

    by mojoman69

    Hauer is too good an actor and a presence to be stuck in DTV hell. ROy Batty is still one of the most iconic characters in genre films. Ellen Page should be a victim, that would be a nice tip of the hat to Nova Scotia.

    by Arteska

    These grindhouse trailers (pretty much all great, funny and witty in the context of that movie) are being diminished by actually being made into features now. It helps that it's still RR behind it all so the sensibility is intact but I really feel this is another case of people thinking they want something they really don't. I'll still see it but this is nichey nichey stuff.

    The hobo with a shotgun, is really a hobo!

    by spindalx

    I live in Halifax and the original Hobo Dave Brunt would hang out at the place i would get my comics, and have interacted with him there was no way he was going to be in a full length version of this movie due to the fact that he is a actual hobo. At the comic book store he would play video games they had set up on a tv, he alway smelled bad, and would always talk to himself or curse out loud no matter the age of children in the the place. You could tell that he has some sort of mental illness but that being said his acting in the trailer is a nice accomplishment for him.

    “I condense what I do and I try to make it intelligent. Rather than say, 'Let me repeat this for you a couple times so you get it... ok?' I don't want to do that. I mean, why would you want to serve that kind of audience? So all my audiences, I think, are relatively limited. It's not the masses.” - Rutger Hauer

Or let's say they got a lot of acclaim in some other movie just because the movie made $200 million at the box office but they still suck -- I got no respect for 'em and I let 'em know it.

    Thanksgiving love

    by Bouncy X

    i can't speak for anyone else but the reason i thought it was the best of the bunch was the acuracy. it completely felt and looked like an old trailer for a movie from the 70s or 80s. the image quality (and i don't mean the scratches) had that old videotape/film stock look to it. even the voiceover sounded like one of the voiceover guys from back then. then the actors and the fashion were good and even the fonts used for all the credit related things. if i had found that on youtube and nobody told me, i would totally believe its a real old movie. all the other trailers had giveaways that they were recent.

    by Psycho_Kenshin

    by entrafis666

    ...Jason Eisnfer's short film. It has a better production value than the hobo trailer. Its pretty hilarious stuff. The ending might be a bit brutal for some people's tastes, as it doesnt really hold back on the violence. Its sort of a weird hybrid of Attack of the Killer Tomatoes and Evil Dead with some splatter film influence.

    I also live in Halifax and heard the same information in Spindalx's previous post. I didn't want to say anything though, in case it was bullshit. But that would be a good reason Mr.Brunt isn't carrying the weight of the lead. I hope the movie does well for all involved.

    by Cinemanimetal

    I really wish Dave Brunt had continued his role as the hobo. I wonder if it was his choice or if the only way the movie would be made was with a star as the lead? Still, Rutger Hauer IS a legend and perfect for the role. Good to see Brunt is in the movie, but it will no doubt distract me and make me wonder what could have been. Been waiting for this movie for a long time now! Good to hear it is finally happening!

    Calling something a bomb when it's not is wrong

    by Tall_Boy66

    If someone is going to be stupid and call something a "bomb" then their facts are wrong. Bombs do not turn a profit. Kick-Ass did, therefore it's not a bomb. Calling something that it's not just leads to more idiots in the world breeding more idiots. Fight ignorance with knowledge. Bomb it is not because it made it's budget back and then some.

  • April 18, 2010, 10:31 p.m. CST

    by Tall_Boy66

    Don't go around spreading information that is incorrect. That leads to genocide and so forth. Mediocre? Fine, whatever, that's a difference of opinion. Bombs don't make money. This is a true fact. Correct facts are good. Getting things right and not spending your life being wrong and stupid is also good.

    Tall_Boy66 - fuzzy B.O. math

    by Jarek

    Your math is fuzzy. When a $28M film makes $30M in theaters, that isn't profit. Why? Because they don't account for P&A (prints & advertising) in the budgets they post... with P&A, Kick-Ass probably cost closer to $50-60M. So far, it hasn't made it's money back. But it will.

  • April 19, 2010, 10:01 a.m. CST


    by Jarek

    You also aren't accounting for the cut the exhibitors get out of that B.O. take. The studio probably only gets half or less of that $30M.

    by squidge

    "If you've delved into '70s exploitation at all you'll feel the trailer was a chip off the old, funky block". Well... I've "delved" into the subject, seeing as how I was a kid in the '70s, and spent all my spare time and money watching exploitation movies in first run, with very few escaping me. The only thing in this trailer even slightly resembling the '70s is the font style of the title. Seriously, so many people claim to love '70s exploitation yet seem to know nothing about it. This was pure crap that screamed "bad contemporary student video" in every frame. If you think this in any way captures the feel of '70s exploitation, I feel sorry for you.

    'Plan 10 From Outer Space'

    by thomasjarvis

    Royston Lodge, there's already a film called 'Plan 10 From Outer Space'. It was released in 1995 and starred B-movie queen Karen Black as an alien named 'Nehor'. I first read about it in the 'Ed Wood'cover issue of Cinefantastique back in the day. The storyline of the film involves a mormon "phrophet" stumbling upon an insidious alien plot to take over the world. You can look it up on the IMDb. Curiously, the look of the film somewhat harkens back to the production design of Tobe Hooper's remake of 'Invaders From Mars', which also stars Karen Black (as well as her son Hunter Carson, whose father was L.M. Kit Carson -- the guy who scripted Hooper's 'Texas Chainsaw Massacre Part 2' as well as 'Paris, Texas' and 'Breathless'). L.M. Kit Carson happens to be Tarantino's favorite script wirter, for what its worth.
