Apocalypse Now Now is an upcoming film directed by Michael Matthews, based on Charlie Humans cult urban fantasy novel of the same name.
In 2015 it was announced that District 9 writer Terri Tatchell would be adapting the novel Apocalypse Now Now as a feature film, and while that production is still ongoing, Matthews and writer Sean Drummond have created a 7-minute short film version that acts as a proof of concept of what they plan to release.
The film follows "snarky, monster-porn-dealing teen, Baxter Zevcenko, who might be a serial killer. His girlfriend, Esme, is missing, and hes the prime suspect. To clear his name, hell turn to Cape Towns grizzliest, drunkest bounty hunter, Jackson Jackie Ronin. Little does he know that Ronin is a supernatural bounty-hunter, and that hes about to be dragged headlong into a deep, dark Cape Town underbelly full of monsters and myth, shadowy government forces, bloodthirsty crow-men and a conspiracy across time and space."
The Apocalypse Now Now short film will be released online by Short of the Week on Tuesday, 29 August.
