So, Aaron McGruder has launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise $200,000 that will go towards the budget for a live action R-rated Uncle Ruckus comedy feature. Not a Boondocks movie; just an Uncle Ruckus movie.
No studio is involved; it'll be financed entirely via crowd-funding, he says.
He'll direct the film, from his own script, with Gary Anthony Williams, who provides the voice for Uncle Ruckus on the animated series, starring in the live action film.
The campaign was launched yesterday; and as of this post, $11,341 has been raised, with 29 days left. If the money continues to flow at this rate, he'll definitely raise the $200,000, and then some... although, you should know that the $200,000 is just a piece of the total budget, and not the entire budget for the film. So he'll likely return some time down the road to launch another campaign (or two) to raise the rest of the funds.
