Back in January, actor and writer Michael Jai White teased a possible sequel to his cult 2009 blaxploitation parody Black Dynamite, with the project subsequently revealed to be more of a spiritual successor – the Western comedy The Outlaw Johnny Black. And, coinciding with the launch of an IndieGogo campaign, we’ve got a look at the first poster and teaser trailer for the spoof; check them out here…
“It’s very similar [to Black Dynamite],” Michael Jai White tells AV Club. “It’s got that same mindset, as if the creators of that film went and did a Western. It’s going to have the same sensibilities and layered humor, where you have the ridiculous and the deep and the outlandish all at the same time, along with the physical humor. I just believe that great humor should be layered, you know? Like a cartoon that appeals to adults and children alike, and everybody takes their own message [from it]. And with Black Dynamite, I did the humor in such a way where there’d be jokes that went over peoples’ heads until the second time they saw it. And it’ll be the same way with Outlaw Johnny Black.”
