The most-epic military movie ever needs your help to get made
The most-epic military movie of all time needs your help in getting made.
Veteran-owned companies Article 15 Clothing and Ranger Up have teamed up on an IndieGoGo crowdfunding campaign for “Range 15,” a film project the companies say will be the “military movie you’ve always wanted someone to make.”
What does that mean exactly? According to the launch video and campaign page, that would include appearances by not only the crew of fine folks at Article 15 and Ranger Up, but also Special Forces veteran/UFC fighter Tim Kennedy and Medal of Honor recipients Dakota Meyer and Leroy Petry.
Sidenote: When Article 15 visited WATM a few months ago, we got a look at the script. While we can’t reveal the storyline, we can say that it became clear very quickly that the movie is going to be awesome and very, very funny.
Both companies have already put in $500,001 (not a typo) to make the movie. Now they are looking for $325,000 more to provide the following (via the IndieGoGo page):
- Bigger explosions.
- Crazy special effects.
- Non-stop Act of Valor style knee slide shooting.
- Forget about 3. That’s not happening.
- Hot chicks.
- Even bigger explosions.
- More badass celebrity cameos.
- Viper semen.
- Did we mention hot chicks?
Check out the launch video below (which is actually quite hilarious) and support the movie on the IndieGoGo page here.
