We told you about the indie film Rock Jocks a few months ago. Over the weekend in Chicago, fans got a chance to get a sneak preview of the ROCK JOCKS teaser trailer and participate in a Q&A discussion with the filmmakers. The movie features Justin Chon (Twilight series) as Seth, Kevjumba aka Kevin Wu as Danny, and Gerry Bednob as Tom. It’s being positioned as Clerks in Space. Here’s more about the film:
Imagine asteroids so large that they can wipe out all life on the planet constantly bombarding the Earth. The only things standing in the way are the Rock Jocks, a top-secret band of government employees, who pilot asteroid-killing satellites. The story takes place during a Rock Jocks night shift. Though they are there to fight off asteroids, they spend most of the night fighting off boredom, themselves, and the occasional meddling government bureaucrat hell-bent on cutting their department’s budget.
Currently in post-production, Rock Jocks is scheduled for 2012 theatrical release. Other stars in movie including Felicia Day (The Guild), Jason Mewes (Clerks), Doug Jones (Hellboy, Pan’s Labyrinth) and Robert Picardo (Star Trek: Voyager, Stargate SG-1). The film is written and directed by Paul Seetachitt.
