It is almost impossible (and certainly less fun) to talk about HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN without restoring to groan-inducing puns. Needless to say, though, it's a total blast and has been blowing audiences away at Sundance. Now that we have that out of the way, HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN really is an impossibly fun neo-grindhouse showpiece that is bred of deep rooted love for all things exploitation. I took some time to sit down with co-writer and director Jason Eisener (whose short TREEVENGE played Sundance in 2009) to discuss the origins of HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN, inspirations for the look of the film and what would have happened if Rutger had said 'no' to playing the titular role. Check out the video after the break.
