A new trailer for ’77 has hit the net. ’77 (previously known as 5-25-77, the release date of the original Star Wars) is a coming of age story that focuses on a geeky high-school student and aspiring filmmaker named Pat (John Francis Daley of TV’s Freaks and Geeks). Like many people, Pat’s life changed on seeing Star Wars for the first time, something I’m sure all of us dorks can relate to.
The film is partially autobiographical: Pat is based on the director, Patrick Read Johnson (writer and producer of Dragonheart). ’77 doesn’t yet have a release date or distributor, but should hopefully be hitting the film festival circuit in the coming months.
