Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. This video has been circling the web today, originating at Kotaku, and creating quite a stir.
When I heard about this, I assumed it was a fan video and wasn't all that excited to click on it, but then it kept being discussed with such enthusiasm that I finally said, "Alright, I'll give it a couple minutes."
And then I watched the whole thing. What really grabbed me is that this video is extremely well done. You'll recognize Michael Jai White as Jax and a few other familiar faces and that's all well and good, but I love the production value. I like how grounded in a sort of SEVEN-ish reality this is.
But check it out:
The Latino Review's El Guapo has some info on the short. Turns out the FAME remake's Kevin Tancharoen directed it as a test to try to get WB behind him and his crew.
Impressive. I hope he gets the job and just makes a totally fun, brutal flick with these characters. You?
