KTown Cowboys: The Movie

on Wednesday, Jun. 1st

“The last time I was on TV, I played a fat, mute, Thai critic. So the next time I’m on TV, I’d much rather play a fat, mute, American critic.”

It’s the return of Ktown Cowboys. Well, not quite yet. But if you’re a fan of last year’s runaway hit web series, which follows a group of guys having one epic night in Koreatown, you’ll be happy to hear that the gang is working on turning it into a full-fledged feature film: KTOWN COWBOYS THE MOVIE. Check the video:

The movie is a comedy with the same characters set a year before the events of the web series. They’ve got a script, and they’ve secured money to make the movie, but they’ve just launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise money to cover the cost of marketing. Read on for details:

As of now we have locked down most of the money which will be used for the actual shooting of the film. However, we would like to raise more money to properly market the film. Our goal is to premiere the film at a film festival such as South by Southwest, and then go on a nationwide tour to screen the film at various cities and meet as many of our fans as possible. The money we raise on Kickstarter will go toward all necessary materials and fees needed to market our film correctly. This means printing out posters, merchandise, flyers, ad space, etc.

I know the original web series generated a lot of fans. So they’re trying to put something together that will exceed expectations and be even more entertaining and epic than the first outing.
