The third film installment in the cult favorite series, "Trailer Park Boys: Don't Legalize It" has been nabbed for distribution by Screen Media Films, the same distributor as the first two "Trailer Park Boys" films. Based on the popular Canadian television series, the trilogy follows the escapades of Julian, Ricky and Bubbles played by John Paul Tremblay, Rob Wells and Mike Smith. Theatrical release is anticipated for September 5, 2014 nationwide, with accompanying VOD release date to be announced.
In this installment, the three get involved in a marijuana deal, and their business is threatened by the impending legalization of the drug. They hit the road to Ottowa to fight the movement and keep their illegal profit-maker illegal and profitable. Bubbles, less invested in the lobbying effort than his friends, tags along in order to pursue his supposed inheritance from his long lost parents.
The madness that ensues is brought to you once again by Screen Media Films. In addition to the first two "Trailer Park Boys" movies, Screen Media recently released last year's indie "The Lifeguard" with Kristen Bell.
"We're very excited to bring Julian, Ricky and Bubbles back to the big screen in the U.S. We know their fan base has been eager to see what kind of trouble they get into next," said Screen Media's Suzanne Belch, who took part in the negotiations. The movie was made by Trailer Park Productions and Topsail Productions, and directed by Mike Clattenberg.
