God Bless America: Bobcat Goldthwait Plans To (Cinematially) Kill A Bunch of Spoiled Brats

With Boondock Saints, it was heavy gang members. That made sense. We were all afraid of organized crime back then, just like in the 70s when it was Charles Bronson taking some vigilante justice in a way the police refused to.

So who do we fear now? Who are the police too afraid of to confront? Bobcat Goldthwait has figured it out: those tiara-wearing non-princesses on My Super Sweet 16 who get Kanye West to sing at their birthday pre-party.

According to the World’s Greatest Dad director, God Bless America will focus on a man who’s watching an episode of the MTV program, goes a little Falling Down in the head, and drives 400 miles to kill the girl from the show. This eventually snowballs into more killings, and he gets a sidekick to help carry the bodies. It all sounds like more subversive quality from a dark comedic mind.

If this announcement made you feel bad for feeling violent toward teenage girls, Goldthwait has already done half his job. [Cinema Blend]
