We just got off the phone with the producer of the film, Andrew Fischer of Nurv.com, and he assured us “the movie is not a prank” and that it’s not just one elaborate “rick roll.” He’s been planning this film for over six months now, and he’s aiming for a theatrical release.
“Instead of going to Hollywood for expensive A-list actors, why not sign people on with a name who command an audience?” Fischer told us.
Fischer went on to say that the movie will be an “epic comedy,” and that a longer trailer will be released soon to reveal more details of the film.
“A lot of people will be very surprised by the plot,” said Fischer.
