Fatman will hit select theaters on Nov. 13 and on VOD Nov. 17.
“A superhero film wrapped in a thriller dipped in western and sprinkled with satire” — that’s how writer-directors the Nelms Bros describe their new holiday fantasy action film Fatman.
Christmas spirit looks a little different with Mel Gibson, who we see portraying a rowdy, gun-toting Santa Claus!
The action-comedy directed by Ian and Eshom Nelms centers on a neglected 12-year-old boy (Chance Hurstfield) who hires a highly skilled assassin (Walton Goggins) to take out Chris Cringle (Gibson) after receiving a lump of coal in his stocking. Cringle proves himself a worthy adversary as he is not so jolly or festively plump, and more so skilled in weaponry after being forced into a partnership with the U.S. military to save his declining business.
Fatman is produced by Fortitude International’s Nadine de Barros and Mammoth Entertainment’s Todd Courtney, along with RBL Studios’ Michelle Lang, Zed Filmworks’ Robert Menzies and Skywolf Media’s Lisa Wolofsky.
