FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Title: ROUGH BOYS THE MOVIE
Subhead: Now filming in Alabama
Dothan, Alabama – April 20, 2019
Bucking the Hollywood system, executive producer Dennis Sanfilippo and biker Blues musician Charlie Brechtel created a feature-length biker movie last year called Rebel on the Highway. Made by bikers, for bikers, the film tells the story of a down-on-his-luck musician who makes a deal with the Devil for overnight stardom. The movie was an instant hit at regional theaters, motorcycle dealerships and bike shops where “biker movie nights” have sprung up around the country to show the film and sell merchandise. The film is a five star hit on Amazon Prime.
Now the same team is in production on a new film, Rough Boys sponsored by Lucas Oil, Hupy & Abraham Motorcycle Attorneys, Dirty Bird Concepts and others. The film hopes to introduce a whle new generation to the joys of two very American passions; bikes and the Blues.
The plot revolves around bike shop owner and Bluesman Slim Dixon (Charlie Musselwhite) who passes his love of motorcycles and music to a ragtag group of teenagers. When Slim passes away, he leaves instructions with his daughter Billie (Athena Ransome) to get the rough boys he mentored back together for a motorcycle sojourn through the south to deliver his ashes to the “Home of the Blues” in Clarksdale, Mississippi. But along the way, the legend of a long lost golden motorcycle and a buried treasure throws a wrench in the works. In a brilliant marketing move, the film Rough Boys is filled with clues to an actual treasure in which lucky viewers can win a $40,000 custom motorcycle by Denver’s Choppers, Paughco Motorcycle Accessories and S&S Cycle, PLUS $10,000 in cash!
The cast, including Blues legends Charlie Musselwhite and Benny Turner and the crew of Rough Boys have just returned from a successful week of filming in Dothan, Alabama at Accurate Engineering and Landmark Park. Berry Wardlaw, owner of Accurate Engineering, is acting as the feature film’s location scout and line producer, and Easyriders magazine’s editor Dave Nichols wrote the screenplay with Charlie Brechtel and is directing.
Several important scenes in the film will be shot in May at the world famous Buffalo Chip Campgrounds in Sturgis, South Dakota and will feature Buffalo Chip owner, Rod “Woody” Woodruff.
