As previously reported, the creators, which are nine veterans, behind new movie took to the crowdfunding platform with a mission to raise $325,000 for the upcoming picture’s production costs. Range 15 is described as a movie is so “hardcore military” it makes “Hollywood wet itself and run home crying to mommy.” The veterans, wrote:
“Range 15 was spawned from the veterans that make up Ranger Up and Article 15, the two largest military lifestyle brands on the planet. For years, we’ve given you badass clothing and videos, but last October, while sitting in a bar and drinking an inappropriate amount of alcohol, we decided to join forces and make the greatest movie ever. Then we sobered up and realized we didn’t really know how to make a movie. Then we got drunk again and realized that God hates a coward.
“Knowing we needed a director good enough to make our vision a reality and crazy enough to read our script and not call the authorities, we broke into Ross Patterson’s house in the middle of the night and flashbanged his bedroom. When the smoke cleared, he was in sitting in his smoking jacket wearing an eye patch, pipe in hand. ‘I’ll make your movie,’ he said. ‘But first, you’ll have to dance for me.’ We promised we’d never talk about what happened next.
“We’re making the military movie you’ve always wanted someone to make: relentless ball busting, guns, explosions, hot chicks, booze, and more guns. We will not dramatically salute each other. We will kill lots of shit, all while using our weapons correctly. Again, there will be hot chicks. Mat will probably sleep with all of them. And I mean that both in the movie and in real life. Seriously, that guy has a real problem. Tim Kennedy may or may not be oiled up in a loin cloth.”
During a recent update, the Range 15 crew revealed some big news about the upcoming production (which involves a zombie scene):
“North American Rescue has come on board as a sponsor in a big way and the result is that we’re only $50k away from being able to afford Close Air Support for the film (both Jets and Helicopters)!!! This means that we will be able to have truly epic explosions and really kill the sh*t out of some zombies.”
Those who are backing the project will receive various perks, including the digital download of the film, ranger panties, b*tches get bit t-shirt, and more.
The campaign is set to close on Friday.
