Hotline Miami Short Film Launches Fundraising Campaign

A short film based on the top-down shoot 'em up game Hotline Miami has launched an Indiegogo fundraising campaign to help make the project a reality.

The movie is described as a crossover between Christopher Nolan's Momento and Quentin Tarantino's Pulp Fiction set in 1980s Florida. 

A press release for the film notes the support of Hotline Miami's developer, Devolver. 

"Hotline Miami: A Short Film, [is] the newest Indiegogo campaign that launched this afternoon. The project will be spearheaded by writer and director, Saman Kesh (ControllerCalvin Harris' We'll Be Coming Back). The publisher (Devolver) and developers are not only involved in the short film, but are allowing Saman and his team to bring this to life."

A sequel to the hit game has been announced and is expected to be released in 2014. Hotline Miami 2 will feature a hard mode and multiple player characters who each have their own story.

The game is currently set to be released on Linux, Mac, PC, PS4, and PS Vita.  

You can watch a seven minute trailer for the movie below and pitch in over on Indiegogo where the movie makers are looking for $50,000. The film has raised just over a $1,000 so far and the fundraising campaign has 30 days to go.
