The first look at Rutger Hauer in the HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN behind the scenes video! Plus an exclusive piece of art!

Published at: April 26, 2010, 6:12 a.m. CST by sounding



Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with more HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN news. Last weekend we broke Rutger Hauer playing the title character and that filming was to begin on Monday. The first week of shooting is up and a nifty behind the scenes video has hit the nets, which features our first look at Roy Batty as the Hobo. Check it out:

And that’s not all, as they say on those late night infomercials. I also have a bit of art from Nat Jones for the production and some background on what it all means.

The Plague is a bounty hunting team hired to hunt down and eliminate the Hobo. Sucks for them because we all know the Hobo won’t go easy on ‘em. Also love the THING font. Lookin’ good! -Quint quint@aintitcool.com Follow Me On Twitter

    I get the sneaking suspicion

    by seppukudkurosawa

    That, despite the fact that he's the title character, this movie is gonna focus on a few bad lead actors and then splice in the day or two's shooting they filmed with Rutger. Of course I've got nothing more to base this on than my bad experience with DTV-style movies like this in the past.<p> That is an evocative poster, though. No one mentioned rusty robot foot soldiers before!

    by Dkev00

    That looks as low budget as it gets. And how the fuck does it have a R rating if they only just started shooting?

  • April 25, 2010, 10:25 p.m. CST

    This is why studios try not to release "raw" footage.

    by Breotan

    Seeing that stuff on a "features" portion of the Blu-ray is fine but it makes your production look amaturish when it's released before the film.

  • April 25, 2010, 10:40 p.m. CST

    Rutger is looking great as the Hobo

    by entrafis666

    This could be great. The robot looking armour is bizzare looking. It should be fun and bloody at the very least.

    by steadmann

    i have no idea why some of you think raw footage has been released. if you spent five minutes reading the blog you would find out all the video stuff is being done by the guys behind the blog. this is all for fans like me, who want to see how things are made. c'mon this is totally an amazing thing for jason to be letting us in on! the nat jones artworrrk is seweet! i can't wait to see more!

    Looks like a paint by numbers indie horror film

    by Tapioca

    "(Insert some person exploited by society) WITH A (Insert some badass weapon)" There's your movie title. In a word boring. But, on the bright side, at least it looks better and more fun than Kick-Ass.

    Yeah, Steadmann is right

    by entrafis666

    I dont really think this is raw footage. Its clearly behind the scenes stuff. Eisner and the crew are visible in alot of the footage. Its pretty cool they are letting us see some of the effects work and shooting this early.

    by TheJudger

    and why does the video look so direct to dvd. Take his damn clothing and rake it through some filth behind a truck and hit it with some sandpaper, and stop production on the movie and tell RH to stop shaving for 8 months and then start filming again. teeth gotta be yellow also.

    What a lot of garbage

    by SmokingRobot

    Seriously. Are grown men involved in this? I like 'action' as much as the next guy but there is a line that crosses into 'violence porn'. This looks to be over that line with no redeeming social qualities.

    This looks very either/or

    by Rocco Curioso

    Both in the usual sense and a Kierkegaardian sort of way. I somehow get the feeling this would also work (perhaps better) as a weekly TV show, with Hauer's hobo character traveling from town to town like Caine in "Kung Fu". Only (of course) unlike Caine he's not a peaceable man whose can of whupass is pried open by unsuspecting idiots. Each episode would begin with Hauer randomly offing a few punks, then the townfolk spend the remainder of the episode trying to chill him the fuck out (maybe ply him with liquor & ho's). But alas, his rage is too all-encompassing, and each episode ends with a mini-bloodbath. Plus he needs a catchphrase.

  • April 26, 2010, 12:53 a.m. CST

    I like the concept art

    by D o o d

    but I agree with some of the other TB's. It may have been a good idea to keep the video under wraps.

  • April 26, 2010, 1:03 a.m. CST

    re. NippleEffect

    by Rocco Curioso

    *Which* "Firefly" guy?--- Nathan Fillon or Adam Baldwin? Good call either way.<P>Even so, I doubt Hauer will disappoint as a shotgun-toting badass with an amoral agenda. If you haven't seen "Wanted: Dead Or Alive", go rent it, watch it, and return enlightened.

  • April 26, 2010, 3:25 a.m. CST

    by Master Bruce

    Hauer earns a lifetime badass pass 'cuz of WANTED: DEAD OR ALIVE...and BLIND FURY, not to mention THE HITCHER. I'd watch him be a Hobo w/a shotgun anyday!

  • April 26, 2010, 3:32 a.m. CST

    Good casting choice for the lead

    by AsimovLives

    Nowdays, Rutger Hauer looks like an hobo even when he's dressed posh. He barely resembles now the adonis he used to be in his younger years - just check out how he lokked like in SOLDIER OF ORANGE and BLADE RUNNER. That man aged badly. He's a cautionary tale about the excesses of party-life, drugs and inflated ego. Damn fine actor, though. He deserves a comeback.

    by AsimovLives

    I completly agree with you about Rutger Hauer. The thing is, he's responsible for where he's now, due to his mistakes and bad calls. But it's about time the man gets a comeback, with that i totally agree with you. He's a damn good actor, too good to go to waste. For a moment i though it was happening, due to his high profile casting for BATMAN BEGINS.

  • April 26, 2010, 4:13 a.m. CST

    agreed w/Master Bruce and AsimovLives

    by Rocco Curioso

    Rutger Hauer has been the Rasputin of B Movies for far too long, with the occasional foray into top shelf recognition (a Golden Globe award for "Fatherland", a solid addition to "Batman Begins"). Let's hope the man's staying power can push him back up the ladder yet again.

  • April 26, 2010, 4:32 a.m. CST

    I was kinda hoping that he'd have more....

    by Cervantes

    ....of a straggly beard in this, and be dressed in a long (no doubt pissed-stained) coat in this, giving him a kind of demented 'hitcher' look.<P>I'm sure he'll be great in this eventually though.

    Looks like a home-spun attempt at a horror flick circa 1980 or maybe that's intentional, either way it looks pretty sub standard. Poor Rutger from Agent of Orange to this???!

    The end result...

    by entrafis666

    is gonna probably look a great deal different than what we are seeing in this behind the scenes footage. After seeing "Treevenge", I am confident he is gonna deliver exactly what fans of the trailer are looking for in a full feature.

    by youridol

    The greatest actor of all time. http://www.rutgerhauer.org/ He has a million muscles in his face and has control over every one of them. “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.” The Ruts.

    Favorite Hauer role outside BLADE RUNNER

    by AsimovLives

    This is almost a loaded question because a) Roy Batty is Haurer's favorite role he ever played (it's also his favorite movie he made); b) In his early career he had so many good roles.<br><br>I guess i have to go with his role in SOLDIER OF ORANGE, it was his most wholesome role he played. But he was magnificent in THE HITCHER. I guess for me it's a tie up then with SOLDIER OF ORANGE and THE HITCHER.

    Yeah, Sixies. That's what I'm telling you.

    ... Daryl Hannah's favorite movie is BLADE RUNNER. Not her favorite movie she was in, but her FAVORITE movie, the movie she loves the most in the whole history of cinema. How that that, that you were an actor in your own favorite movie? Must be a great felling.

  • April 26, 2010, 3:32 p.m. CST

    Oh you should, it's Paul Verhoeven,a nd it's WWII spy stuff. It also stars Jeromé Krabbé. Really, Verhoeven's dutch stuff is also good stuff to check out. SOLDIER OF ORANGE is just his most "acessible" dutch movie, so to speak. Also, the movie has a guy being blown up by a hand grenade while on the shitter. Only Verhoeven.

    Wow, somebody saw SPETTERS too in here? Another "i'm impressed" moment for me. Some people in here do know their Verhoeven Dutch Period. What i found most amusing in Verhoeven's SPETTERS is how unjudgemental the movie is to the characters, speacially to the leading lady character. In most movies made in Holywood, she would be labled a fucking bitch and would get her "just deserve" in the end. But not this movie, this movie actually likes her and gives her an happy ending, which in some ways, she deserved. Verhoeven sure has this sympathy for "lose" women.

    for Ladyhawke. I agree it was shit, though the film itself had an original, interesting, romantic story. And the lead was likeable. And the action was brutal. Uh...fuck it! That movie was seven kinds of awesome to me. If you disagree, that's cool. <p> I'm looking at you, Asi. <p> But the film itself was the best film of its kind until the pure awesomeness of Willow premiered.

    by lotharius3rd1118

    It's not a gay thing, Asi. It was just a visually interesting, though less intriguing piece of work from Verhoeven for me. I grew up on RoboCop and Total Recall Verhoeven, and when it comes to it erotic thrillers, it's sad to say that he's only a little better than Adrian Lyne. <p> I just didn't care for the people involved, whereas Douglas in Basic Instinct was somewhat understandable for me. Once again, this is not a gay thing, but I just can't agree with the shallowness of the characters presented in The Fourth Man.

    As soembody said above, SPETTERS is a slice of life movie about this 3 friends and the girl that enters their life. Two of them are byke racers, one of them very good and a possible world champion and the other not so good, and the 3rd is a skilled mechanic that fixes the bykes. they are young kids in late 70s Holland, just wanting to have fun with their girlfriends, little worries about the future. It's a really good movie, and for allt hose who think that Verhoeven is an action movie direector, it does come as a suprise to see that he could make character drama movies. Adn yes, there's racing sequence sin the movie and they are pretty good. As a bonus, there's Rutger Hauer in a cameo, and it's your oportunity to see how he sounds speaking in his native dutch.

    You se,e the shallowness of the characters in THE FOURTH MAN is the point. first of all, the whole movie, desides being a mystery thrilelr, is also a joke playined on the type of pseudo-intellectual movies fileld with meaningless meaningful stuff. Verhoeven and his scriptwriter decided to have fun with the critics and filled the movie with clues that mean nothing at all. Meanwhile, the important lcues and hidden stuff was shown more ellictically.<br><br>The main character is deliberatly unsympathetic. He's a narsicist, and the movie takes great pleasure in pulling his leg and fucking him up. He's one of those "important" writers who ar ein fact shallow idiots with too much self-importance just because they can string words into good writing. As for the lead lady character, she is the ultimate ambigious femme fatale. nothing is ever known about her. Is she really a murderous black-spider? Or is she just a poor woman who suffered a run of very bad luck? Or is she really a witch? Or is all just in the imagination of the lead character? Does Jesus and the Holy Mary actually helping him? Or is he just a stupid drunk that is in the final stages of alchoolic delirioum?<br><br>I think you understimate the movie. You should check it out and listne to the audio comentary by Paul Verhoeven, he explains a hell of a lot the whole business about the movie.

    WILLOW is like a DIY Lord Of The Rings...

    by AsimovLives

    ... for the mentally challenged. It's when Geroge Lucas tried to remake the magic of STAR WARS, used the same tropes, and failed miserably. Because it was Ronnie Fucking Howard directing it. Jesus Christ, Luca,s so yeah, Howard was in AMERICAN GRAFFITTI, and it's admirable your loyalty to your old pals, but for fuck's sake! Howard is not what you chose if you want to go epic or badass. Specially both. Howard is this light comedy/soap opera director who for some weird fucking reason people keep on hiring to direct movies the guy can't even have a clue how to make them. NIGHT SHIFT is his deal, or fucking SPLASH.

    Willow was and is awesome!

    by Hey_Kobe_Tell_Me_How_My_Ass_Tastes

    I was about 11 when it came out and I thought Val Kilmer and Warwick could do no wrong! I watch it every two or three years. I saw it again last year and I STILL think its awesome!

    Hauer destroys Freeman in BATMAN BEGINS

    by youridol

    Delivers the "did you get the memo" line 8 million and 6 times better.

  • April 26, 2010, 6:01 p.m. CST

    "Hauer destroys Freeman in BATMAN BEGINS"

    by Continentalop

    I think that is a tad exaggerating, don't you youridol? I prefer Hauer's read of it, but a lot of that has to do with the context of his character (swarmy bastard).

  • April 26, 2010, 6:04 p.m. CST

    Hauer over Freeman

    by youridol

    Hauer would have equally destroyed him if the roles were reversed. Freeman has never shown the range to excel as a face and as a heel.

  • April 26, 2010, 6:05 p.m. CST

    Hauer destroys all pussies!

    by Hey_Kobe_Tell_Me_How_My_Ass_Tastes

    It's in his motherfuckin contract!

  • April 26, 2010, 6:05 p.m. CST

    I don't think Hauer has the naturally like-ability and charm

    by Continentalop

    That Morgan has, so I don't think the role reversal would work that well for either one.

  • April 26, 2010, 6:07 p.m. CST

    BLADE RUNNER is Harry Ford's best performance but...

    by youridol

    no one notices because Hauer fucking obliterates him.

  • April 26, 2010, 6:07 p.m. CST

    I didn't like the movie but

    by Continentalop

    I liked Hauer in CONFESSIONS OF A DANGEROUS MIND. He brought pathos to his small little role.

    Hauer has more charisma in his fingernail clippings than Freeman and his mother have in their entire bodies.

    youridol, I like Rutger Hauer

    by Continentalop

    But Freeman obviously has charisma and presence. Otherwise why does he enamor people so much? <p> Presence isn't always given to those who are the better actors.

  • April 26, 2010, 6:14 p.m. CST

    I mean Freeman had enough charisma

    by Continentalop

    To convince his step-granddaughter to let him have anal sex with her. Think how much charisma you need to do that, and let everyone give you a free pass?

  • April 26, 2010, 6:15 p.m. CST

    Because popularity breeds mediocrity.

    by youridol

    “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. Freeman is too "on the nose" and obvious and easy for people to "get."

    I tell time in Hauers

    by youridol

    A Hauer is the average length of a Hauer movie (approximately 93 minutes). So, if you say, "See you in a Hauer." People will assume 60 minutes but you can show up in 90 or so and not be later. Or in 3 hours and say, "I was thinking of like an INSIDE THE 3RD REICH kind of Hauer."

    What im trying to do

    by Jason Eisener

    Hey guys, I really appreciate the feedback on Hobo. I get the impression some people are thinking this is a Hollywood flick. Which is not the case what so ever. Hobo is pretty low budget. It feels like im still making a movie with my friends and it just so happens that Rutger Hauer is playing along with us. The blog videos are behind the scenes clips. Hobo With a Shotgun wouldn't be happening if it were not for the internet audience that supported the original trailer. I have some friends making blogs and posting them as we go so I could keep everyone who helped us involved in some way. Were shooting this film just like they did in the good old canadian tax shelter days. Hopefully will make a rad movie, hopefully some of you will dig it. Thanks guys

    Thanks for dropping by mate, you go for it... you've already done great 'groundwork' with the trailer and casting genre-fave Hauer. I'm sure you have every chance of making 'a rad movie' - hopefully MACHETE might also release around the same time and create a bit of synergy and extra heat for the flick.<p> Good luck with it...

    And yet you fight for the notion that WILLOW is a great awesome movie. You know when soembody does that? When they are certain they are right. And it's as it should. Just stop with all that "me say this, you say that" stuff. that's not fairness. You believe you are right about WILLOW. You believe you are more right about it them me. Just admit it. I'd respect that directness far more, because that's what it is. You believe you are right and not me. That's it. No shame about it. Just deal with it.<br><br>And it's me who'sright about WILLOW, that movie is just mediocre , a bad atempt at LOTr mixed with STAR WARS and failing along the way form start to finish. Lucas wantesd to strike gold twice following the STAR WARSS recepy but it didn't worked. And Ronnie Howard's direction is like all his directing, bland, uninteresting and uninspired. He's a jorneyman bordering on hack.
