Bula Quo! - Trailer
Director Stuart St. PaulYear 2013Genre(s) Comedies
Rick Parfit and Francis Rossi of seventies rock band Status Quo think they've seen plenty of trouble in their lives, but life is about to get a bit more rock 'n' roll when they become embroiled in a gang murder. Having just finished their 50th Anniversary tour in Fiji, they go to celebrate with a few drinks at a nearby bar. However, their rockstar instinct kicks in when they notice something happening round the back that smells like it could be a party. Unfortunately, they realise, perhaps too late, that it is actually a mob forcing two men to play Russian Roulette. The pair cause a fire to interrupt proceedings before running with the evidence, but it's not enough to hide their identity as the mob boss orders them to be killed. Their escape attempt leads them on a string of hilarious antics while their worried manager Simon and his painfully honest intern Caroline set out to rescue them.
'Bula Quo!' is Status Quo's first movie though not their first foray in acting (they previously made cameos in the long-running British soap opera 'Coronation Street'). It has been directed by Stuart St. Paul ('Freight', 'Devil's Gate') who co-wrote the screenplay with Jean Heard in her screenwriting debut. This brilliant action comedy is set to be released in cinemas on July 5th 2013.
