The Boondocks: Uncle Ruckus Movie Feb. 1st, 2013 @ 06:27 PM Reply

Aaron McGruder has created a kickstarter campaign to fund The Uncle Ruckus Movie! It will be a live action film featuring our favorite self-hating negro and with 28 days left to go there is a total of about $21,000 raised, the goal being almost ten times that.

If you love The Boondocks, I strongly encourage you to back this project. Every dollar counts!

Donate here--->http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/362353100/the-un cle-ruckus-movie

Lets make this happen, NGers.

Mr. McGruder has anticipated your questions and posted this:

âEUoeThereâEUTMs always been interest in a live-action Boondocks movie, which to me was out of the question considering Huey and Riley are essentially impossible to cast. The animated feature would cost around 20 million, but a live action Uncle Ruckus movie could cost a fraction of that. So just for the hell of it we had the costume made and it was pretty amazing. To see Gary actually transform into Uncle Ruckus... itâEUTMs quite the surreal experience. I never expected the transition to be so completely seamless.âEU

Dammit Tom, why must it be this way?


The simple fact is that some people will never be happy, no matter how good their lives are.

Perhaps he should steal the money instead, if that isn't what he already plans to do.

Ugh, Id rather it be about the main cast. That kid from role Modles could easily be Riley.

Uncle Ruckus is just an asshole background character.

How do you make a movie about him?

I hate Uncle Ruckus as a character, and this idea sounds stupid.

Fuck it. It will likely recycle all the jokes in the main series.

The only reason to see this film would be to laugh at the overly loud black audience.

I fucking hate the emphasis they keep putting on Uncle Ruckus, he's a funny character but dear god, he does not need the 3+ episodes that are entirely dedicated to him, plus all the times he appears and has heavy appearances throughout the series AND a live action movie. I mean, he's a funny character and I like him, but he's not a main character, get outta here with that shit man.

Seriously, McGruder, you're not god's gift to writing, you CAN cast your supposedly uncastable main characters Huey and Riley, they aren't so deep and symbolic that they can't be acted by a live action actor.

The Boondocks has too many visual gags/sets that are much more easily manipulated with animation. I suppose one could look at this like a different sort of spin-off, but I don't think I could get through it without contrasting it against the series too much.

$200,000 seems like quite a bit of cash. I'm not sure if the movie will actually come to fruition with such a high tag.

The concept seems hilarious, I can only imagine this dude going through real hoods and "hating" on all the coons and jigaboos so to speak; but this would be funny coming from Aaron McGruders point of view
