Since the word disco doesn’t sound bad-ass enough, we’ve now got a new trailer and poster for the latest film with Billy Bob Thornton, complete with a title change. Although the first footage from the project (which is being referred to as a A Southern Whip-Ass Extravaganza!”) was delivered earlier this year, it looks like a proper release is in order for The Baytown Outlaws, now that a theatrical trailer has arrived.
Teaming Thornton with Eva Longoria, the story of three wild Alabama brothers doesn’t look far removed from (another) Smokin’ Aces sequel, but does newcomer director Barry Battles have it what it takes to successfully helm a Quentin Tarantino-inspired romp? See for yourself with the trailer and poster below for the film also starring Michael Rapaport, Daniel Cudmore, Clayne Crawford, Travis Fimmel, Andre Braugher and Paul Wesley.
The rousing rebel spirit of a family of Southern thugs takes off at breakneck speed in “The Baytown Disco” — a wickedly playful, high-velocity action-comedy in which three infamously ruthless Alabama brothers find themselves on the wrong side of crooked cops, relentless Feds, mad mobsters, road pirates, tomahawk-wielding bikers, tricky femme fatales and an unforgettable cast of characters as colorful as they are lethal when they finally try to do a single good deed.
The Baytown Outlaws arrives next year.
