Pawn Shop Chronicles

Tossed into theaters with little fanfare, Pawn Shop Chronicles was dreamed up as a “hillbilly Pulp Fiction” that saw three stories swing in and out of one pawn shop in rural somewhere-or-other. It’s probably still on a few screens, but it’s also getting a DVD/Blu-ray release on August 27th, and it looks like the kind of thing that might thrive on home video.

Fred Durst was set to direct early on, but along the way he left and Wayne Kramer (Running Scared) took over with Paul Walker, Elijah Wood, Vincent D’onofrio, Matt Dillon, Norman Reedus, Thomas Jane, Lukas Haas and Brendan Fraser in an Elvis costume starring.

That’s an intense cast (and there may even be women in it, too!). After watching the trailer, it’s hard to tell what the stories are all about beyond a bunch of insanity floating around near drugs and weaponry.

It looks like anthology pictures are spreading beyond horror, but can you imagine if this had come out closer to Smokin’ Aces?
