In a rather alarming trend, historical American presidents are emerging as the bloodthirsty superheroes of the summer. After ABRAHAM LINCOLN, VAMPIRE KILLER, comes a new film by Ross Patterson, FDR: AMERICAN BADASS!, which has just been acquired by Screen Media Films. The horror/comedy stars Barry Bostwick as FDR and features Kevin Sorbo (HERCULES) and William Mapother (ANOTHER EARTH) in supporting roles. The film is a slapstick comedy that has the 32nd President of the United States riding a ‘wheelchair of death’ to stop the world from werewolves who carry the polio virus, including werewolf versions of Hitler, Mussolini, and Emperor Hirohito. The film is expected to be one of the underground hits at the upcoming Comic-Con, the largest assembly of comic book “nerds” and the sci-fi film crowd. FDR: AMERICAN BADASS! will screen with the previous hit from the filmmakers, POOLBOY: DROWNING OUT THE FURY, on consecutive nights at the San Diego conclave next month.
