Johnny Crash Singer Releases First Feature Film
March 3, 2013
Vick Wright, lead vocalist for ’80s rockers Tokyo Blade and Johnny Crash, has recently completed his first feature film in Los Angeles to be released in the UK and Europe later this year through Vicktory Films.
A supernatural thriller entitled ‘To Hell With A Bullet’, the film features music by Aussie favorites Airbourne along with music by Rhino Bucket and L.A. locals Badwater. The film stars Ronnie Gene Blevins, who appeared in the new Nicolas Cage film ‘Joe’, and Timothy V. Murphy, of Jerry Bruckheimer’s ‘The Lone Ranger’ and FX’s ‘Sons of Anarchy’, along with newcomers Trenton Rostedt and Danielle Vasinova. The film was shot on location in Hollywood, California and the Mojave Desert and promises to be a true rock ‘n’ roll classic.
The film is set against the sleazy backdrop of the music business, and follows the antics of a washed up rock singer who makes a deal with a mysterious doctor, who promises to return his voice to its prime, with horrifying consequences. Billy Quantreaux is a washed up rock singer whose life revolves around rehearsing with his band of burnouts, and scoring drugs to feed his ever increasing cocaine habit. Like most guys in their late 30s who still dream of “making it big” in the music business, he knows he has reached his expiration date. After being fired by his band for losing his voice one too many times he seeks the advice of Dr. Nick Devyril, who promises to return his voice to its prime, in return for everything he will ever own. Just as everything seems to be turning around, Billy’s girlfriend, Dallas Wilks, a street savvy stripper, threatens to kick him out on the street. In the heat of the moment, Billy pushes Dallas, she slips with tragic results. As Billy tries to focus on what he should do next, he gets a phone call from Chuck Leeson, a fast talking record executive who tells Billy that he believes he could be the next big thing. Billy convinces his band to take him back, so they can play for Leeson and score the record deal they have all been dreaming of for years. This proves to be harder than it looks, because as Billy comes to terms with his drug addiction, he also begins having strange hallucinations that threaten to drive him to the edge of sanity itself, or something far worse.
Vick Wright is best known for his work on Tokyo Blade’s ‘Night Of The Blade’ and ‘Blackhearts & Jaded Spades’ and Johnny Crash’s ‘Neighbourhood Threat’ as Vicki James Wright.
