Details on Penn Jillette crowdfunded film Director’s Cut

0

Last week we reported that Penn Jillette is going to crowdfund a film called Director’s Cut. The FundAnything campaign launched today with the video embedded above, dropping a few details about the film and what to expect.

Written by Jillette and to be directed by Adam Rifkin (The Chase, Look), Director’s Cut will feature a movie within a movie and star Jillette as a psychotic bad guy. Based on the video, there’s a torture porn vibe, but it may be subverted in some way with the meta-narrative.

Jillette is looking for roughly $1 million, and as of this writing, the project has raised just north of $155,000. Funding incentives include access to the full script, a DVD or Blu-ray, a special mystery goodie bag, VIP tix to the Penn and Teller magic show in Vegas, hanging out with Jillette at his home, Jillette answering your phone calls for life, a red carpet invite, and Jillette officiating your wedding or renewal of wedding vows.
