About this project

OLD SCHOOL GANGSTAS

is the exciting sequel to 1996's ORIGINAL GANGSTAS, which re-united Fred "The Hammer" Williamson, Jim Brown, Pam Grier, and Richard Roundtree.  Now, they're back!  Forget THE EXPENDABLES, the old school has returned to kick @$$ and take names!  Fred Williamson's Po' Boy Productions and my company Bargain Bargain Basement Productions are teaming up to bring you OLD SCHOOL GANGSTAS!

Written, directed by, and starring Fred Williamson, OLD SCHOOL GANGSTAS will not only bring back Brown, Grier, and Roundtree: they will be joined by Bernie Casey, Gloria Hendry, Antonio Fargas, and Robert Forster

UPDATE: Any donor of $10 or more will receive a "Special Thanks" credit in the finished film!  We appreciate your help and want the film's credits to reflect it!!! (This applies retroactively to everyone who has already donated $10+ as well!)

Risks and challenges

Fred Williamson has the script, actors, and production schedule lined up. The only thing holding back the film is funding. With his 40+ years of production experience writing/directing/acting/producing via his company Po' Boy Productions, Williamson can make a $1.2 million dollar film that will go toe-to-toe with any big studio picture. With YOUR HELP, The Hammer & co. can make OLD SCHOOL GANGSTAS independently, and with style. This film will deliver. Thank you!
