Oh, Magnet Releasing. How we love thee! With its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival next month as part of the Park City at Midnight section right around the corner, Hobo with a Shotgun has secured itself some distro!
According to The Hollywood Reporter Magnet Releasing has picked up U.S. distribution rights to the genre flick Hobo With a Shotgun. The company plans a release in 2011.
Way back in 2007 Jason Eisner created a faux trailer called Hobo With a Shotgun for the Grindhouse trailer competition. It went over big (and how could it not with a title like that?), and as a result a feature is on the way with none other than Rutger Hauer as the gun-toting street urchin.
The official Hobo With a Shotgun website has a ton of exclusive behind-the-scenes videos, and there’s also a production blog to dig on so pull up a seat and get busy! Look for more on this one soon!
