A new roadhouse film about a small group of people on the run in a post-apocalyptic wasteland is being made by a group of Arizona film fans, including former students.
The film, called Roadhouse Cinema, is being financed by former students of the Tucson film school and is expected to debut in theaters in late April.
“We have been working on this for three years, but it’s only now that it’s a reality,” said Rob Bell, the director of Roadhouse Cinemas.
“It’s really a collaboration between two very dedicated people who were really motivated by the same goal.”
The film centers on two teenage brothers, Alex and Kevin, who are working to make their way through the post-Apocalypse world.
They have been forced to leave their rural hometown in Mexico and move to the desert town of Sahuarita, which is a few hours drive away from their current home.
They must survive a hostile environment, a postapocalyptic landscape and a growing list of challenges.
“The movie was inspired by the book The Roadhouse: The Life and Death of a Roadhouse, by David and Goliath, by John McPhee,” Bell said.
“I really wanted to bring that into the world and do something different.”
Roadhouse Cinema is being produced by Bell’s company, Roadhouse Films.
The film is being directed by former classmates of Bell and his wife, Rachel, and will be the first feature-length roadhouse picture to premiere in the United States.
Roadhouse Films is based in Phoenix and Bell is also executive producing the film with his brother, Kevin Bell.
The Bell brothers are a former high school students at the Arizona State University and have made several feature films, including the 2014 comedy Roadhouse.
