June 2015 - The team at Richard Gale Films is developing a feature-length adaptation of the viral short film The Horribly Slow Murderer with the Extremely Inefficient Weapon. The critically acclaimed short spawned a web series which has received more than 45 million views and developed an international cult following.

The feature-length script has grown to epic proportions, and is filled with new material, which deepens and expands the original story in surprising and exciting ways. The movie will reveal the dark secret origins of the mysterious Ginosaji... as Jack struggles to discover: Who is he? What is he? Where does he come from? Why is he attacking Jack? And most importantly, is there a way to stop him?

In the near future, a Kickstarter campaign will be announced to give fans the opportunity to become a part of the project, and receive a variety of awesome rewards. The start date of the campaign will be announced several weeks in advance.

The film will star Paul Clemens as Jack Cucchiaio, Brian Rohan as the Ginosaji, and Fay Kato as the Mystic. Additional cast will be announced as they join the production. Richard Gale will write, produce, and direct the film.
