CAMP LAKE, Calif.
— Beach Film’s new comedy movie “Cockslaves” is a remake of a 1976 movie based on the book of the same name.
The original was based on a book by James D. Shrimpton called “COCKSLAVES,” a biography of actor Richard Armitage, and the movie will have a similar cast.
Beefy, blond-haired actor, writer and director John C. Reilly is playing Armitages, a hard-drinking, alcoholic, former nightclub owner who takes care of his wife and kids on a farm in the Pacific Northwest.
Armitages has two daughters, Tia and Tessa, and three sons, Jack, Logan and Michael.
A few years before the movie’s release, Armitides told The Associated Press, “My wife and I are the best parents on the planet.”
Beef and Coen Brothers Films, which produced the film, released a trailer last week and released the film’s official title “Cocker Slaves” last week.
This is a great chance for young people to learn about the American West.
It’s also a chance to look at the real-life experience of an alcoholic and the people who lived it.
We’ve seen that there are some who have survived.
That’s what this is about.
And it’s also about people who have been in the real world.
That will be the crux of the movie, said producer and director Kevin Murphy.
We really want to take that audience in and show them, you know, you’re not alone.
The film is scheduled to hit theaters July 8, 2019.
