Director Wants To Turn Hotline: Miami Into A Short Film

Director Wants To Turn Hotline: Miami Into A Short Film

Well, it was going to happen eventually. It's Hotline: Miami. Short, sweet, violent and exciting; the perfect recipe for a great internet flick, which is exactly what this man is trying to make — and crowdfund.

The man behind the project is Saman Kesh, creator of several popular online short films, including the wonderful "Controller", which we've featured on Kotaku before. For his Hotline: Miami short, Kesh wants to create a film that "intersects the mood of Pulp Fiction with the mystery of Memento" with "always neon, always stylish" visuals reminiscent of '80s movies.

The project is currently standing at $US1700 raised, with 25 days left and an end goal of $US50,000. Have a look if a violent and mystery-filled trip to '80s Miami sounds like something you'd enjoy.

    Will keep my eye on this one..

    I gotta admit though Hotline Miami is one of the coolest games that I haven't really played. I dig the style, violence & weird sense of humor. And especially the music. The album gets played regularly on my phone. I've even read up on the wiki about the plot and it really sounds like a mind fuck of a game. I do feel bad about not playing the game fully, but I just found it way too hard and frustrating. And the graphics, I don't mind the retro 16bit look but I do get sick of it after a while.

      I have the soundtrack... Just not the game. Fail.

    Drive's director Nicolas Winding Refn was credited explicitly in the game's credits for stylistic inspiration, while I'm sure this short film won't suck, if he were to do it it would be incredible.
