Fountain Valley, CA (411 Productions) — May 14, 2003: 411 Productions proudly announces the release of Bam Margera’s first ever feature film, “Haggard” in conjunction with SLAM films. The star of the CKY series, Jackass and Jackass the Movie, returns to the small screen as Executive Producer, Director, Co-Writer and Star of Haggard.
Based on a true story, Haggard is a tale of a dejected young man after his girlfriend leaves him for a crazed heavy metal rocker. Ryan Dunn (played by himself) is one sorry SOB; he’s completely hung up on Glauren (Jenn Rivell), his ex-girlfriend, even though she’s out playing the field. Rumor spreads that she’s hooked up with heavy metal’s poster child, aptly named Hellboy (Rake Yohn). Ryan can’t stand the thought of the two of them together, so he recruits friends Valo (Bam Margera) and Falcone (Brandon Dicamillo) to find out the truth. The pair do whatever it takes to get their evidence, even break into her house…while Ryan flirts with insanity, has run-ins with the law and even gets stabbed in the eye with a fork his friends try relentlessly to help him forget the girl. Haggard also features special appearances by professional skateboarders Tony Hawk, Jason Ellis and Bucky Lasek.
In an astounding first attempt at a feature film, skateboarding’s brightest star, Bam Margera, has created Haggard almost entirely by himself. While producing, directing and starring in Haggard, Bam has positioned the film to release at the peak of demand from his millions of devoted skateboarding fans around the world.
Available for home entertainment on VHS and DVD, Haggard is being distributed exclusively to skateboard retailers through 411 Productions, the number one content provider in the action sports industry and creators of 411VM Skateboarding. “We’re very excited to distribute another great Bam project. Our relationship with Bam helped create amazing results with the entire CKY series. With our worldwide distribution network and unmatched video marketing and sales history, we’re looking forward to creating another success story with the release of Haggard.” David Brooks, COO, 411 Productions.
