Arkhaven Comics Publisher Vox Day revealed the first teaser trailer for the upcoming film Rebel’s Run based on his Alt-Hero comic series.
In revealing the trailer, Vox also revealed the film will be produced by Viral Films Media, a new film production company. He also noted that the trailer’s director Scooter Downey will be directing the upcoming film. Downey co-directed Mike Cernovich’s recently released “Hoaxed” film. The script will be written by Chuck Dixon and Vox Day.
In a live stream with Owen Benjamin, Vox Day discussed the upcoming film and his reasoning for not only starting Arkhaven Comics, but Viral Films Media.
Vox details, “I was contacted by an experienced producer.” He added, “Then I got contacted by first one producer then I got contacted by other people. Which puzzled me because we’ve published over a hundred books and nobody from the movie industry, TV industry has ever contacted us.”
Vox adds, “I was very curious about this and finally the smartest of the producers that had contacted me and said, ‘Well you have to understand nobody in Hollywood reads.’”
He went on to praise the level of talent that is part of the film, “The level of talent that is taking in part in this whether it’s with Chuck Dixon being the lead scriptwriter…we’ve got a great scripts, you can see from the trailer, the director, Scooter, has a really great visual eye. We are going to bring so many very strong elements to the table that I think that people are going to be really surprised at the final result.” He continues, “We are actually aiming for one of the best movie soundtracks. I want a soundtrack that is going to stand up against the Matrix, Mortal Kombat Annihilation…”
