Working in total secrecy, the US government has been training a single Champion of Earth – a warrior of incredible skill to don a suit of unimaginable power designed by new alien allies in preparation for Earth’s battle for survival against an evil race of aliens. Unfortunately, the suit never made it all the way to its intended destination. Instead of a lone savior, four hapless idiots find the suit and are thrust into the role of heroes as the titular Lazer Team.
Rooster Teeth took to the global crowdfunding platform to raise $1 million for the film. Upon finishing its campaign, the project took home $2,480,099 thanks to 2,197 backers. The channel shared the production details this past fall.
Rooster Teeth’s Barbara wrote, “Lazer Team is a sci-fi comedy directed by Matt Hullum from a story by Burnie Burns, and script by Hullum, Burns, Josh Flanagan, and Chris Demarais. It features a principal cast including: Alan Ritchson, (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire) as Adam, also known as the Champion of Earth. The four bumbling members of Lazer Team will be portrayed by Colton Dunn (Parks and Recreation) as Herman, and our very own Gavin Free as Woody, Michael Jones as Zach, and Burnie Burns as Hagan. Alexandria Deberry (A.N.T. Farm) plays Hagan’s daughter Mindy.”
