Hobo with a Shotgun is about to come and blast into Cinemas

Many of you in the U.S. areas may have already seen MACHETE. Unfortunately, here in the Philippines, we're still awaiting when the released date would be; that is, if ever it gets released here anyway... Right after MACHETE, another Grindhouse fake trailer has been turned into a full-length movie, and that's HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN.

Hobo with a Shotgun, directed by Jason Eisener, was initially a fake trailer made for an international contest to promote the release of Quentin Tarantino & Robert Rodriguez's double feature Grindhouse. It won the contest, and was screened in Canada as part of the actual release of Grindhouse. Other versions of the Grindhouse movie does not include this trailer. [check out the original H.W.A.S. fake trailer...]

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. A feature-length version of Hobo With a Shotgun began principal photograpy in Halifax on April 19, 2010. A teaser trailer (including behind-the-scenes and test footage) was released on April 26, 2010. Dave Brunt, who played the homeless man in the trailer, will play a cop in the film.

Hobo With a Shotgun is the second of Grindhouse's fake trailers to be turned into a feature film, the first being Rodriguez's Machete. It is officially set for release sometime around Spring 2011. [now here's the trailer of the full-length movie...]
