Hobo with a Shotgun started off as an amateur trailer that won a competition and was screened before the Tarantino/Rodriguez Grindhouse team up a few years ago at SXSW. Someone apparently saw it, dug it, and decided to back it, as it is joining Machete in the "fake trailer becomes real movie" world. This time, the hobo is Rutger Hauer, and he's out for vengeance against a city full of drug dealers and all sorts of evil. From the looks of this trailer, which was first shown on the legendary Ain't It Cool News site, it's going to be bloody and crazy, which is to be expected. However, this has the added punch of Rutger Hauer's excellent talent, and that opening monologue to the trailer gave me shivers. This movie could both pay homage to the grindhouse 70's flicks (which is now becoming a genre of its own in the 2010's apparently) AND be a good film in its own right.

Hobo With a Shotgun just finished wrapping, and does not have a release date but you can follow its progress at their Official Website.
