Pure Rock Movie News:
Comedian/actors Bob Odenkirk and David Cross, the stars of HBO’s cult comedy classic Mr. Show, have taken to their fans to attempt to convince New Line Cinema to release their long-delayed feature film Run Ronnie Run. The film chronicles his rise and fall of Ronnie Dobbs, a Mr. Show character who become famous for appearing on Cops, and has been completed for almost a year. According to a post on Bobanddavid.com the release date has been moved from the much-mentioned date of April 12th to “sometime in August, September, October, Winter, or NEVER.” The comedy duo say, “While we can't verify when exactly (simply because no-one at New Line will call us back, or for that matter, knows) we can look at the track record of the film’s continual postponement as cause for concern.
“While we have very little recourse, we can encourage you to let your voice be heard. Through the miracle of email, you can contact the people at New Line and tell them, simply ‘We wanna see the movie.’ We've always felt that everyone down the line has severely under-estimated our fans, both in numbers and sincerity. Don't be dicks about it, but just let them know that there's an audience waiting out there. This is about as good a time as any to make yourselves heard.”
