Filmmaking duo Ross Patterson and Garrett Brawith’s upcoming action/comedy “FDR: American Badass” was recently acquired by the wise and honorable folks over at the Screen Media Films, which means the entire nation will have the opportunity to experience the flick later this year. However, those of you who are heading to the San Diego Comic-Con International this July will have an opportunity to screen the movie, so consider yourselves incredibly lucky. Even cooler is the fact that “Poolboy: Drowning out the Fury” will make an appearance at the convention, as well. Kevin Sorbo fans are going to seriously freak out.
The plot for the aforementioned actioner is as follows:
In this throwback to the original 1966 Batman movie, FDR rides a “wheelchair of death” to stop the world from werewolves who carry the polio virus, including werewolf versions of Hitler, Mussolini, and Emperor Hirohito.
“We are very happy to have to opportunity to work with the Street Justice Films team of Tristan Drew, J.P. McMahon, and Ross Patterson again,” said a representative from Screen Media Films. “This talented film making team has again delivered a timely and over the top horror/comedy in FDR: American Badass and we expect to have great success together.”
Written by Patterson and directed by Brawith, “FDR: American Badass” stars Barry Bostwick as FDR, Lin Shaye as Eleanor Roosevelt, Ray Wise as Douglas MacArthur, Kevin Sorbo as Abraham Lincoln, and Paul Ben-Victor as Mussolini. And that, as they say, is badass. Look for the film is arrive in various formats this September. If you missed the previously-released trailer, you can find the clip embedded below.
