AMBER BENSON’S “DUST UP” GOING DOWN IN 2012 FROM BREAKING GLASS PICTURES
Domestic distributor Breaking Glass Pictures (5 Star Day, The Fields, Easier With Practice) bought domestic rights to the indie grindhouse comedy Dust Up. The deal was struck last week between CEO Rich Wolff and writer/director/producer Ward Roberts of Drexel Box Productions. Dust Up stars genre favorite Amber Benson (“Buffy the Vampire Slayer”, Drones), Ezra Buzzington (“Justified”), Jeremiah Birkett, Travis Betz, Aaron Gaffey, Devin Barry, and Mike C. Nelson.
Roberts couldn’t be happier about the upcoming release. “Dust Up is truly a one-of-a-kind film… fun, funny, scary, sweet, twisted, intense and gross all at the same time. We needed to find a distributor who understood that and could deliver us in the biggest possible way to the ravenous audience who hungers for movies like Dust Up. We are thrilled to be partnered with just such a company in Breaking Glass.”
A one-eyed vigilante with a dark past has vowed to change his ways, trading his machine gun for a yoga mat. But when he encounters a beautiful young mother (Benson) in deep trouble with a cannibalistic drug lord and his evil goons, he realizes that justice must be served. Teamed up with his smooth-talking Native American hipster sidekick, our hero rides into the badass brawl of the century.
Dust Up had a private sneak peek screening at San Diego Comic Con on Friday, July 13th to select critics and contest winners from Benson’s considerable Twitter following. Drexel Box Productions and Breaking Glass Pictures are planning a limited theatrical release in the fall season. Brett Schenker of Graphic Policy raved, “Yes, it’s weird. Yes, it’s over the top. Yes, it’s hilarious.” Likewise, Keith McDuffee of CliqueClack called Benson “flawless as usual.”
The DVD will hit shelves in November, loaded with special features including an audio commentary with Benson and Roberts, Find the Pony, a behind the scenes featurette; various interviews with cast and crew, The Herm Dawg Diaries featurette shot by Betz, and the Dust Up Comedy PSA.
