Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with a bit of news on a flick that won the audience award at SLAMDANCE this year, THE SASQUATCH DUMPLING GANG, produced by NAPOLEON DYNAMITE producers and directed by NAPOLEON's first A.D.
The movie is about a group of sci-fi nerds who find large footprints in the woods and think they've discovered Bigfoot.
I haven't seen this one yet, but I know people who have, people who's opinions I trust, and they were in love with the movie, telling me it it was this generation's MONSTER SQUAD. Thems is high praise for me and a bar that has been set incredibly high. You can't just lightly throw out MONSTER SQUAD comparisons with me and this friend knows it, too. I hope to see the flick and now that Sony BMG has the distribution rights, hopefully that'll be sooner rather than later. BMG is Sony's music branch, which is weird. I believe this is their first feature film (non-concert film) that they've distributed.
The movie stars Peter Pan (Jeremy Sumpter), Carl Motherfuckin' Weathers, Stephen Tobolowsky, CABIN FEVER's Joey Kern and JEEPERS CREEPERS dude Justin Long. Carl Weathers... Man I gotta see this movie!
