[adrotate banner=”1″]$quid is an upcoming movie in 2009 that is an extension of a short film from 2007. In the short, two men in a boat get attacked by a giant squid, because that’s what giant squids do, evil boat-attacking stuff. Here is the short, so watch it as it is free.

Imagine Anaconda directed by the Coen Brothers; a ‘creature feature’ driven by character rather than action. Then imagine a giant squid attacking a singles cruise on the out skirts of the Brisbane River. That is the inspiration for the feature film, $quid.

“Their debut feature film is in a class of it’s own. About a giant squid that terrorises a New Year’s Eve cruise on the Brisbane River, the film $quid, which is the brainchild of Brisbane Boys Daley Pearson & Luke Tierney even has it’s own genre.

“We’re calling it a Romster Comedy.”

“That’s a genre we invented which is a romantic, monster, comedy.”

Pearson & Tierney wrote and will direct, produce and edit the new film, which is being shot on location at the Brisbane River.

It will star Aussie actors Ed Kavalee [Thank God You’re Here, Boytown], Josh Lawson [Thank God You’re Here, Sea Patrol], Christian Clark [Neighbours], Henry Nixon [Noise, The Pacific], Brooke Sheehan and Lauren Lillie.

The feature film is based on the award-winning short film of the same name.
