One of the most memorably twisted indie films of recent times was undoubtedly 2011’s micro-budgeted Bellflower – an apocalyptically minded tale of Mad Max fandom and a love affair which goes horribly awry. The Sundance-screened movie was made by a collective of filmmakers known as Coatwolf, whose membership includes writer-director Evan Glodell and producer-composer Jonathan Keevil. Today, the Coatwolf crew announced that their next project, the Keevil-directed action movie Chuck Hank and the San Diego Twins, will feature molotov cocktails, a high-speed car chase, and “a massive bone-crushing 30 person street brawl.” The (fairly reasonable) catch? You have to help pay for it.
Coatwolf has launched a crowd-funding campaign with the intention of raising the $60,000 necessary to shoot the ’80s-influenced film’s action sequences. The mayhem-filled Bellflower, incidentally, cost a mere $17,000 in all, so Lordy knows what kind of crazy they can create with such a humongous amount of dough.
For more information about Chuck Hank and the San Diego Twins head on over to the official Coatwolf website and/or check out the highly entertaining, highly foul-mouthed please-give-us-some-cash video below.
