Drafthouse Films has acquired Jeremy Coon and Tim Skousen’s “Raiders!: The Story of the Greatest Fan Film Ever Made,” a documentary about two friends’ journey to complete their passion project: a shot-for-shot remake of “Raiders of the Lost Ark.”
“Raiders!” has been a hit on the festival circuit with strong screenings at SXSW, DOC NYC, Fantasia International Film Festival and more.
“Raiders!: The Story of the Greatest Fan Film Ever Made” will see a limited theatrical release across North America in the summer of 2016, alongside a variety of VOD and digital platforms, with a Blu-ray/DVD release to follow later in the year.
We saw this film in March as part of South By Southwest. Here is our review.
