You know, if even the great Fred “The Hammer” Williamson is getting into this whole Kickstarter thing, then maybe I’m going to have to admit that there’s something to it.
But that right folks. Wlliamson has just started a Kickstater campaign to raise $1.2 million in 60 days to make a sequel to his 1996 film Original Gangtas..
Coming back for the film are the original stars of the first one: Williamson, Jim Brown, Pam Grier,and Richard Roundtree, and also Bernie Casey, Gloria Hendry, Antonio Fargas and Robert Forster.
My God, it’s like I’ve gone back in time to a Saturday matinee in 1973.
And if Spike could raise the money for his next project using Kickstarter, why not the Hammer? It’s only fair.
Here’s the link to check out Williamson’s Kickstarter page HERE.
