'No Chance' Parodies 'Commando' in '80s Action Hero Web Series

No Chance 

Tweetable Logline: The ’80s’ greatest action hero is back in “No Chance,” an action web series/feature film. The parody sequel to “Commando.”

Elevator Pitch: After completing his most important mission – saving his daughter, the government asked him to come back, but he said “No Chance.” Little did he know that adjusting to Life After Action would be so tough. A couple of massacres later, and he found himself locked away. Ten years later, a letter from his daughter makes him realize that she needs his help more than ever and that some parts of his past may not be dead. There’s only one thing for a good ’80s hero to do – break out, find the bad guys and kick their asses ’80s style.

Production Team: 
Matt Poitras -Director/Editor/Producer
Jason Chilton – Writer/Producer/Actor
Darren Lehmann – Cinematographer/Producer/Actor

About the Project: There’s never been an era of moviemaking that was quite as much fun as ’80s action. That’s why three bona fide children of the ’80s have gotten together to bring that sense of all-out entertainment back to the screen. “No Chance” is our tribute to the golden age of action movies. While it’s a parody sequel inspired by the ’80s classic “Commando,” it will still be jam-packed with all the guns, guts and glory that made the ’80s great. It’s time to celebrate everything that was awesome about ’80s action. 

Current Status: In production with 40 minutes of finished content completed. Crowdfunding to make rest of feature film. Find out more about the campaign here.
