Film Threat critic Chris Gore has turned writer-producer with the feature My Big Fat Independent Movie, a parody of the indie film world starring Paget Brewster, Neil Barton and Eric Hoffman. Described by Gore as being in the vein of the Scary Movie franchise, Fat includes satirical takes on such indie fare as Amelie, My Big Fat Greek Wedding, Memento, Secretary, Pulp Fiction, Run Lola Run, Swingers and others. Gore co-wrote the Fat screenplay with Adam Schwartz and Yoni Berkovits. Philip Zlotorynski is helming the project, in production with locations in Los Angeles and Las Vegas. Fat is being financed through Aloha Pictures. "The film is a love letter to the indie community and those who take the kinds of risks that Hollywood traditionally avoids. It's a low-brow comedy for the high-brow crowd," Gore said. Zlotorynski's credits include the short films Sway and Walkentalk.
