Hobo With A Shotgun (And Other Awesome Haliwood Film News) 

As most of you movie fans should know, local auteur Jason Treevenge Eisener has taken his fake exploitation trailer that won Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez's Grindhouse contest in 2007 and turned it into a feature, shooting in Dartmouth right now, starring Rutger "Roy Batty" Hauer as the hobo in question. Eisener is playing in the big pool now and props to him. The $3 million + feature film is being produced by Rhombus Media's Niv Fichman, who was behind such notable Canadian films as Passchendaele and Blindness.

Eisener is already posting video clips of his feature film directorial debut for us to enjoy. We don't know where he gets the time, frankly, but we're stoked to see what's going on. Check this out, Hobolovers.

Oh, and we've heard that CBC dude and former host of The New Music, everyone's boyfriend George Stroumboulopoulos has a cameo in the picture.

In other Halifax film cooliosity, Halifax filmmaker Noah Pink will be screening his film ZedCrew, about Zambian hip hoppers, at the Cannes Film Festival in June. An earlier version of the same picture showed at the Atlantic Film Festival last September. A big congrats to him, as well.
