Every now and then a truly inspirational film comes along that you just know will win the hearts of audiences everywhere. I don’t think I’m going out on a limb when I say Rubber probably won’t make that list. Rubber is the story of a killer tire named Roberto who goes out for revenge against humans after discovering a pile of burning tires. I’ll give you a moment to finish laughing…
/Film reports that the 2nd film from director Quentin Dupieux (aka as Mr. Oizo in the electronic music community) is set to premiere as a special screening in the International Critic Week’s competition at the Cannes Film Festival on May 15th. Dupieux also explains why he made the film, “I like the idea of doing a film on a living tire, with no narrative structure nor dramatic stakes. It’s possible! Also, The budget was very limited: I conceived the script, taking into account our means, and I like working like that a lot.”
Word on the street is Freddie Prinze Jr. has already contacted Roberto the tire for some tips on how to be a believable actor. Check out the teaser trailer for Rubber after the jump:
Rubber stars Stephen Spinella, Roxane Mesquida, Jack Plotnick, Wings Hauser, Ethan Cohn, and Charley Koontz.
