‘Housos’ Get Big Screen Outing
Writer/director/comedian Paul Fenech is set to make his debut feature.
Edgy local distributor, Transmission Films, has just acquired Paul Fenech's hilarious and shocking feature film, Housos Vs. Authority, based on the television series, Housos, which will see Australia's most famous bludgers on a journey from Sunnyvale to the very centre of Australia, Uluru.
Shot on location, the film follows Franky, Shazza, Dazza and their mates on a quest to sprinkle Shazza's mums ashes on top of Australia's most famous Icon.
Written, directed and produced by Fenech, Housos has been dubbed the comedian's most controversial work so far in a twenty-year provocative career, which has included the television series, Pizza and Swift and Shift Couriers.
"Paul Fenech is a comic genius and we know audiences who appreciate the ‘out-there' humour of Sacha Baron Cohen and The Dictator, will also get Paul's unflinching but hilarious take on Australian suburban life in Housos Vs. Authority. It's politically incorrect, it's mayhem and it's very, very funny," said Transmission Films' Joint Managing Directors Richard Payten and Andrew Mackie.
Transmission Films will release Housos Vs. Authority in Australia in early November 2012.
