is set to distribute Alter Egos
, an indie superhero comedy he didn’t direct.
His Smodcast Pictures was set to help out scrappy newcomer Jordan Galland
‘s low-budget film and now the first full-length trailer has arrived.
Directed and written by Galland (Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Undead) the flick stars the mostly unknown cast as Kris Lemche, Danny Masterson, Christine Evangelista
and Sean Lennon
who also contributed an original musical score.
Quirky movie – which tells the story of an under-appreciated superhero going through an emotional crisis during a time when superheroes have lost all government funding and public support – got its world debut at the Fantasia Film Festival in Montreal in July.
Check out the trailer and poster below for Alter Egos. The film opens in limited release October 19th, 2012 and hits VOD on November 20th.
