While his feature debut Hobo with a Shotgun is playing to mostly positive reviews over at this week’s Sundance Film Festival, director Jason Eisener is already eyeing his next project – a bloody martial arts film that he hopes to make in the spirit of the gory classic 1991 Hong Kong film Riki-Oh: The Story of Ricky (one of the bloodiest films ever made!) Get the skinny inside!“You can expect it to kinda be in…the same world [as ‘Hobo with a Shotgun’],” Eisener told B-D reporter Chris Eggertsen during an interview about Hobo‘s Sundance premiere. “There’ll be lots of blood and guts in that as well too…I gotta do a film that’s like a new version of ‘Riki-Oh’ maybe. [Laughs]”
Eisener doesn’t yet have an official title for the film, but we’ll be sure to keep our eyes on this one for you as news develops. In the meantime, Eisener recommends that all who have yet to watch the Hong Kong martial arts flick check it out ASAP.
“Oh man, just look it up on YouTube,” said the director excitedly. “It’s an amazing film. Just look it up. You’re gonna want to track it down.”
