Attention fans of sci-fi and all things weird: Redlab Digital has just released a proof of concept film for Apocalypse Now Now.
The Canadian production house is teaming up with local heavyweights like Terri Tatchell (the Oscar-nominated screenwriter behind District 9) and director Michael Matthews to bring Charlie Human’s novel to the screen.
Set in the backstreets of Cape Town, the story follows 16-year-old Baxter Zevcenko (played in the short by Garion Dowds) as he tries to rescue his kidnapped girlfriend with the help of supernatural bounty hunter Jackson ‘Jackie’ Ronin (Louw Venter).
With an aesthetic that can be described as Harry Potter on steroids, we can’t wait to see a feature-length production.
