Coming off of the drug caper Down and Dangerous, which we covered upon its release, director Zak Forsman has shifted roles to executive produce the new feature Dead Bullet, which comes from the creative collective known as Sabi and stars John T. Woods. Written and directed by newcomer Erik Reese, we’re pleased to exclusive premiere the first trailer, which is bristling with frenetic energy and proves how one can achieve a high quality production value, despite being produced on a micro-budget.
The soundtrack for the Gary King-produced film also features 19 eclectic musical artists from the 60s and 70s as well as some modern-day hip-hop artists. The drama will have its world premiere next month at the Tucson Film and Music Festival, before hitting the festival circuit and hopefully be available to check out via streaming services in the not too distant future. In the meantime, check out the trailer below and follow along on their Twitter for updates on where to see it.
Desperate to turn his life around, a hard-luck gambler risks everything to sell stolen casino chips to ruthless criminals. It’s the worst bet of his life.
Dead Bullet premieres on October 8th at the Tucson Film and Music Festival.
