Big Game

jackson-fury

A few years ago, director Jalmari Helander made a movie called Rare Exports where thousands of Santas got naked and ran through the frozen tundra while chasing after a young boy. It was a special moment, and he followed it by announcing a future project that he described as Home Alone meets Rambo. It’s been a long time since that announcement, but it’s possible that we’re finally going to see it. According to Deadline Hollywood, we’ll at the very least get to see a new Helander movie — whether or not it involves Kevin McAllister carrying around a semi-automatic and a grudge remains to be seen. The new project is called Big Game, and it’ll focus on a young boy sent to the woods to prove himself on the same evening that Air Force One is shot down nearby. The kid finds the president (Samuel L. Jackson (no kidding)), so they naturally pair up to battle bad guys. Hopefully with paint buckets and broken Christmas tree ornaments. This sounds like it could be Home Alone meets Rambo, right? Young child, guns, forest setting, likely bandana use. It makes sense, but even if this isn’t the same concept Helander was developing back in 2010, it still sounds ridiculous enough to work.
