Lloyd Kaufman has officially joined the cast of the new over-the-top, violent action film, On the Count of 3 from independent filmmakers Brett O. Walker and Christopher Coffel.
On the Count of 3 is the debut feature from Walker and Coffel. They co-wrote the script together and Walker will be directing. The film is about two rogue detectives, Charles and Richard, that quit the force and join a secret government agency with the purpose of stopping the world’s deadliest criminals. Their first assignment is to track down the brutal bank robber Porter Rigby.
Kaufman, the legendary independent filmmaking icon, head of Troma Entertainment and creator of The Toxic Avenger will be playing a supporting role as Police Chief Williamson.
“We’re incredibly excited to have a film god like Lloyd on board,” says Coffel. “He’ll be a great addition to the cast and I can’t think of anyone better to be Chief Williamson. You can’t beat a police chief in a bowtie.”
On the Count of 3 is currently in the pre-production and fundraising stage. Walker and Coffel have launched an IndieGoGo campaign to raise funds. In exchange for donations, funders will receive a wide variety of great perks based on how much they donate.
The film will begin shooting in July around the Phoenix area. Along with Kaufman, On the Count of 3 stars Alan Johnson and James Palazzolo.
