Live Action Uncle Ruckus Movie On The Way?
Everyone thought that Aaron McGruder‘s big announcement would have something to do with the fourth season of The Boondocks getting an air date. Sorry, that didn’t happen. But McGruder did announce plans for a live action movie centered aroung the antics of everyone’s favorite hater, Uncle Ruckus.
Yes, the glass-eyed, self-hating man with “re-vitiligo” has plans for a movie, and McGruder announced a Kickstarter page to help with some of the funding. There is no date set for the film, but you can check out the announcement and the trailer below.
Those of you familiar with THE BOONDOCKS already know who Uncle Ruckus is. He’s the hard-working, slur-spitting handyman you love to hate. If you’re not familiar with Uncle Ruckus, it’s difficult to even describe him without violating Kickstarter’s hate speech policy.
If you do know who Uncle Ruckus is, you either really love him or really hate him. But if you’ve made it this far, you probably love him like we do. This is your movie.
To that end, we are raising funds for an R-rated theatrical comedy featuring Uncle Ruckus, to be produced this year. The movie will be written and directed by AARON MCGRUDER, and stars GARY ANTHONY WILLIAMS – who does the voice of Uncle Ruckus on the animated series. The story, which is currently being written, will not involve any of the other regular BOONDOCKS characters, but rather explore a part of the Ruckus family not seen in the show.
Although having to wait almost three years for a new season seems unheard of in today’s age, fans of the Peabody award-winning hit series are all too familiar with lengthy gaps between seasons, as the average wait between each season so far has been two years. For season 4, however, the lengthy wait is nothing compared to the fact that a fourth season even exists at all.
