TROMAVILLE, NJ—Troma movie titles never leave much to the imagination, and such is again the case with the Toxic Avenger company’s latest effort, Shakespeare’s Shitstorm. Kaufman, Sgt. Kabukiman NYPD and the Troma Team will be presenting a sneak peek this Friday in Las Vegas at the Empire Theater (814 South Third Street, Las Vegas, NV 89101) at 9 p.m., along with a screening of their cult classic Tromeo and Juliet, which was co-written and produced by James Gunn (Guardians of the Galaxy).
Those interested can get a sneak peek of the first teaser, featuring some of the adult performer cameos, here.
Kaufman will also be appearing at the AEE at the Bad Dragon booth on Friday and Saturday afternoon after 4 p.m. to promote the movie and sign autographs for fans for free.
The latest movie from director Lloyd Kaufman and the Troma Team features many adult performers in featured roles as well as cameos, including Nadia White, Tommy Pistol, Sonia Hardcourt, RE Zee, Jillian Janson, Christiana Cinn, Tanya Tate, Bridgette B, April O’Neil, Ron Jeremy and others.
Shakespeare’s Shitstorm is directed by Kaufman from a screenplay by Brandon Bassham. The gross-out farce stars Kaufman as The Tempest’s Prince Prospero in a modern take on the Bard’s 17th century play. Many Troma favorites appear in the cast, including Tromeo and Juliet’s Debbie Rochon and Ming Chen of AMC’s Comic Book Men. The project was produced by Justin Martell and John Brennan and co-produced and SPFX coordinated by Doug Sakmann.
Coming 25 years after the release of Tromeo and Juliet, Lloyd Kaufman and the Troma Team are going “back to the Bard” with the best interpretation so far of William Shakespeare’s The Tempest. Prospero, the brilliant and generous pharma scientist, had his life and career ruined by blind, greedy, perverted pharmaceutical execs, causing him and his very hot daughter Miranda to flee from NYC to Tromaville, New Jersey. When the evil execs and their elite guests take a celebratory luxury cruise to North Korea, Prospero uses his science, magic and a load of whale laxative to create the titular Shitstorm, wrecking the cruise ship and causing the execs to wash up in Tromaville.
“Prospero has planned a ‘brutal revenge’ with all the sex, mutations, musical numbers and violence that Shakespeare always wanted but never had,” explained Kaufman.
