Animation legend Bill Plympton is back with a new animated feature — his eighth! — and Cartoon Brew has an exclusive look at the new trailer.
Plympton, who celebrated his 70th birthday last month, is shaking up his creative process by working on Revengeance with a creative partner for the first time. His collaborator, Jim Lujan wrote the film’s story about a low-rent bounty hunter who gets the assignment of his career when an ex-biker/ex-wrestler-turned-U.S. Senator hires him to find stolen goods and the woman who stole them.
Lujan, a self-taught animator, has a body of work almost as extensive as Plympton’s, albeit lesser known. His output includes over 50 shorts, spots for Adult Swim, music videos, and a feature-length film of his own, all of which have a distinctive point of view. “I tend to do stories about people like ex-boxers, DJs, cult leaders, stoner girls, fake superheroes, and other fringe members of society,” Lujan told Cartoon Brew. “Usually, the strangest characters are the supporting cast in films…in my films, they are the stars.”
