A bloody Barry Bostwick battles beastly killers in this likely historically inaccurate spoof.
The DVD is out on September 25th and we have the details after the jump.
Did you know that beloved president Franklin Delano Roosevelt only entered politics to avenge himself and the world of the murderous werewolves that crippled him?
Yeah, me neither.
The film is from actor-turned-director Garrett Brawith and writer Ross Patterson, featuring Rocky Horror Picture Show and Spin City star Barry Bostwick, along with New Line vet Lin Shaye, Hercules himself Kevin Sorbo, and Ray Wise as Douglas MacArthur.
Here’s the official synopsis from the press release:
The shocking secret history of our 32nd American President is finally revealed in, what critics are calling “nothing short of hilarious” (Todd Rigney, Beyond Hollywood), the triple-threat action/horror/comedy FDR: AMERICAN BADASS, available on DVD September 25th from Screen Media. A sensation at this year’s Comic-Con, the film stars Barry Bostwick, of TV’s “Spin City,” “Cougar Town” and The Rocky Horror Picture Show fame, as Franklin Delano Roosevelt, who, after being left crippled by a werewolf bite, decides to run for President in order to stop a global werewolf curse controlled by Hitler, Mussolini and Hirohito.
Joining Bostwick in the ass-kicking fun is a who’s who of cult film and television stars, including Lin Shaye (There’s Something About Mary) as Eleanor Roosevelt, Kevin Sorbo (TV’s “Hercules”) as Abraham Lincoln, and Ray Wise (TV’s “Twin Peaks”) as Douglas MacArthur. FDR: AMERICAN BADASS was written and produced by Ross Patterson (Poolboy: Drowning Out the Fury, upcoming Darnell Dawkins: Mouth Guitar Legend), who also co-stars. Fans of Airplane! and The Naked Gun series won’t want to miss the unapologetically rude and crude humor of FDR: AMERICAN BADASS when he rolls in on DVD and On Demand.
