Fred “The Hammer” Williamson Launches $1.2 Million Kickstarter Campaign For ‘Original Gangstas 2’

Fred “The Hammer” Williamson Launches $1.2 Million Kickstarter Campaign For 'Original Gangstas 2'

You know, if even the great Fred “The Hammer” Williamson is getting into this whole Kickstarter
thing, then maybe I’m going to have to admit that there’s something to
it.

But that right folks. Wlliamson has just started a
Kickstater campaign to raise $1.2
million
in 60 days to make a sequel to his 1996 film Original Gangtas..

Coming back for the film are the original stars of the first one: Williamson, Jim Brown, Pam Grier,and Richard Roundtree, and also Bernie Casey, Gloria Hendry, Antonio Fargas
and  Robert
Forster
.

My God,  it’s like I’ve gone
back in time to a Saturday matinee in 1973.

And if Spike could raise the money for his next project
using Kickstarter, why not the Hammer? It’s only fair.
