Rutger Hauer is... Hobo with a Shotgun

AICN is reporting that Rutger Hauer has signed on to star in Jason Eisener's Hobo with a Shotgun, the former fake grindhouse trailer-turned-feature length film. The Nova Scotia filmmaker won the contest at the 2007 South by Southwest Film Festival to create a fake trailer as part of the promotion for the Quentin Tarantino/Robert Rodriguez double feature Grindhouse. The trailer's a pretty good attempt to recreate the kind of grungy, sleazy exploitation films that played grindhouses in the '70s, but it's hard to tell whether the translation to feature length will be as entertaining, and there's all the chance in the world that we could have another Snakes on a Plane on our hands. Still, the prospect of seeing Rutger Hauer as a Hobo with a Shotgun is keeping my hopes afloat.
