Dick Johnson & Tommygun vs. the Cannibal Cop has wrapped principal photography in Buffalo, NY, and we have the first set of stills right here. Get a look at this upcoming horror comedy, or face the wrath of Dick. Trust us… Dick wrath sucks.
The film, an action-horror-buddy cop hybrid, was written by John Renna, who co-stars with Sam Qualiana. Danny Hicks, Debbie Rochon, and Timothy Patrick Quill are also in the cast.
“Working with Danny and Tim, and finally getting to direct Debbie, was a true honor,” says Renna.
He also gives a lot of credit to his location, “The support we received from local businesses was staggering. Buffalo actively supports film and art, making a lot possible on a minimal budget.”
Qualiana plays Dick Johnson, a by-the-book detective who partners with rough-around-the-edges Jeff “Tommygun” Thompson to track down the elusive and mysterious Cannibal Cop. Hicks plays their captain, who takes an active role in the manhunt; Rochon plays a police woman who holds the secret to the mayhem; and Quill plays Shabby Sammy, an underworld connection. The rest of the cast is played by Buffalo locals, and the rock group Pinky Doodle performs in the film.
“What we’ve accomplished on such a small budget is really remarkable,” says Chris Rados, who co-produced and co-directed the film with Renna and served as its cinematographer. “There’s action, comedy, and a touch of horror to keep fans of each genre happy. Throw in Debbie, Danny, and Tim; and I think we have something special.”
The filmmakers still need to shoot additional action and special effects inserts but plan to finish their opus by the end of the year. Cheryl Clements served as executive producer through her company River Ridge Reels.
