I posted about GUNS AKIMBO on the Moviehooker Facebook Page when the first official image was released. This looks like it is going to be a lot of fun…if you’re into this sort of thing.
GUNS AKIMBO is written and directed by Jason Lei Howden. If you are not sure who he is, he’s the guy who is responsible for the insanely enjoyable Death Metal horror/comedy DEATHGASM. I actually had the pleasure of interviewing Howden when Deathgasm was first released – You Can Read The Interview Here
When I first heard of GUNS AKIMBO, I have to say I was immediately drawn to its bizarre story. It was only TODAY I learnt that this is Howden’s next film. That reason alone has got me super excited. Deathgasm was just a joy to watch, very stupid, very clever and a fantastic homage to the likes of Peter Jackson’s earlier work, Bad Taste or Brain Dead
Daniel Radcliffe plays, Miles, a mighty and fearless keyboard warrior (we all know them). When Miles wakes up in a city in some sort of online game with his hands replaced by automatic weapons he must fight his way through a series of violent criminals to save the girl he loves.
And so, so good to see Daniel Radcliffe choosing these sorts of rolls. He is really starting to leave his mark on the independent cinema scene.
Guns Akimbo has been welcomed with pretty solid reviews. Most of these state that this film will not be for everyone. It is fast, stupid and extremely violent. If you are familiar with Deathgasm and Howden’s style of writing, humour and gore, I am sure you will find loads to love about Guns Akimbo.
Guns Akimbo co-stars Natasha Liu Bordizzo and Samara Weaving.
As Always, thanks or reading, More information to follow as news is announced.
