Post  Juggaloco420 on Fri Sep 17, 2010 2:35 am

Big Money Rustlas is an American Western comedy film directed by Paul Andresen. The film is the prequel to the 2000 film Big Money Hustlas. Joseph Bruce wrote the story, and he, Andresen, and Studebaker Duchamp adapted the story into a screenplay. Their writing was influenced by classic Western films, classic Warner Bros. cartoons, and the film Blazing Saddles.

Gambling tycoon Big Baby Chips (Joseph Bruce), along with his assistants Raw Stank (Jamie Madrox) and Dusty Poot (Monoxide), run the downtrodden town of Mud Bug through extortion and violence. Sheriff Sugar Wolf (Joseph Utsler) arrives in town to confront Big Baby Chips, redeem his family name, and save the town. The film's tagline is "The Good, the Bad, and the ... Outrageous," a parody of the film The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.

Big Money Rustlas was released direct-to-video on August 17, 2010. A theatrical tour to screen the film around the country is currently planned.

Production
The film's director, Paul Andresen, had previously worked with Joseph Bruce and Joseph Utsler on the short film Bowling Balls.[4] Andresen was enthusiastic to work on the film because of previous experiences with Psychopathic Records, and Bruce's sense of humor.[2] Paul Methric described the production as being more organized than that of Big Money Hustlas.[2] According to Methric, "The first one was, let's shoot it 45 times, then shoot it another 45 times, where this one the guys knew exactly what we needed, and we got in there and got it."[2]

In an interview for Pro Wrestling Torch's Torch Daily Blitz, Bruce stated that the release of Big Money Rustlas was delayed from its original 2009 release to early 2010 due to extra post-production.[3] He said that the Psychopathic Video department was still trying to learn how to work in the film industry. To better improve the quality of the film, Bruce said that Psychopathic Video had hired people from within the film industry to help with production.[3]

Origins

Bruce and Utsler had a negative experience with the New York style of production and "asshole art film crews" while filming of Big Money Hustlas.[5] Following the release of the movie, the two made plans to produce a Western prequel, which would be filmed in California in order to avoid the previous issues.[5] In the packaging of their 2000 album Bizaar, Insane Clown Posse released an image of what would later be the characters Raw Stank and Dusty Poot.

Bruce and Utsler continued to talk about the movie over the next eight years, though no actions were taken to start pre-production of the film. The two were encouraged to move forward with the production of Big Money Rustlas after starring in the 2008 film Death Racers. According to Bruce, "We knew we could do better and we'd have a way bigger budget. And we thought, 'We can pull this off.'"[2]

Story and setting

In 2008, Bruce wrote the original story for Big Money Rustlas in a two week span while touring in support of Dark Lotus' The Opaque Brotherhood album.[6] Afterward, he, Paul Andresen, and Studebaker Duchamp wrote the screenplay. Andresen states that the film was influenced by classic Western films and classic Warner Bros. cartoons.[2] Bruce stated that he loved the Man with No Name Trilogy, as well as Mel Brooks' Blazing Saddles, and that the latter was a strong influence on Big Money Rustlas, due to its comedic anachronisms.[2] Andresen and Bruce wanted the film to place more emphasis on humor than the over-the-top violence that Insane Clown Posse's music is known for.[2]

Casting


Jason Mewes portrays Sugar Wolf's deputy sheriff Bucky.
The film follows a similar casting style to the first film Big Money Hustlas. In additon to the main cast, cameos include musicians Blaze, Mike E. Clark, DJ Clay, Anybody Killa, Bonez Dubb and Otis of Axe Murder Boyz, Daddy X and Taxman of Kottonmouth Kings, Daddy Long Legs and Buddha of Wolfpac, Awesome Dre, and Vanilla Ice, professional wrestlers Corporal Robinson, Terry Brunk, Scott Hall, Scott D'Amore, Jimmy Hart, and Joe Doering. Established actors who appear include Dustin Diamond, Tom Sizemore, Todd Bridges, Jimmie Walker, and Brigitte Nielsen.

Violent J, Shaggy 2 Dope, Jamie Madrox, Monoxide, and Jumpsteady were cast to reprise ancestral versions of their roles from Big Money Hustlas. The role of Dirty Sanchez was originally written for Scott Hall.[7] The part was later given to Mark Jury, who had worked with director Paul Andresen and Insane Clown Posse twice before.[8] As with the first film, Wolf's love interest was played by a pornographic actress, Bridget Powerz, and his sidekick was played by an established actor, Jason Mewes.

Filming

Filming began in mid-January 2009 at Paramount Ranch in the Santa Monica Mountains, California, and concluded on February 24, 2009.[9][4] The film's budget was $1.5 million.[2]

Release
The film's trailer premiered at the 10th annual Gathering of the Juggalos, where it was screened twice.[3] Bruce and Utsler plan to tour theaters around the country to screen the film.[1][9] Bruce also announced that the film would be sent in to multiple film festivals.[3] The film premiered at The Fillmore Detroit on January 23, 2010.[10] The DVD was released locally at the 11th annual Gathering of the Juggalos, and nationally on August 17, 2010.[1]
