Every once in a while, a film will come along that will help ‘re-invent’ a particular genre for a new generation. These guys believe that Hardcore has a solid shot at pulling this off. And from what I’ve seen so far in first look video so far (see above), I’m pretty confident these guys can pull it off! In fact, I’ve already done my part and backed the project!
According to the creator, the film has already been shot and edited, and about to enter the post-production stage. They’re crowdfunding to complete the film to the highest standard possible. More details of how they intend to spend the funds are available via iwanthardcore.com.
So, what is HARDCORE?
HARDCORE is a modern, action Sci-Fi story about HENRY, a newly resurrected cyborg who must save his wife/creator ESTELLE (Haley Bennet) from the clutches of a psychotic tyrant with telekinetic powers, AKAN (Danila Kozlovsky), and his army of mercenaries. Fighting alongside Henry is JIMMY (Sharlto Copley), who is Henry’s only hope to make it through the day. Hardcore takes place over the course of one day, in Moscow, Russia and it’s all shot in the same style as BAD MOTHERFUCKER to be released in cinemas worldwide.
