Return of the Jedi Author James Kahn Seeks Funding via Indiegogo for the Making of Wrongside Bob

Return of the Jedi author James Kahn seeks funding support for his upcoming venture Wrongside Bob. The film project is inspired by Kahn's own CD of roots music, Man Walks into a Bar.


Santa Barbara, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/10/2015 -- James Kahn has announced he is seeking funding for his upcoming feature film, Wrongside Bob. The project, written, co-directed, and co-produced by Return of the Jedi author James Kahn, is inspired by Kahn's own CD of roots music titled Man Walks into a Bar.

The title role will be played by actor/singer/songwriter Ronny Cox of Deliverance, Total Recall, and Robocop. Cox is joined by rock singer Gabbie Rae of VH1's Best Week Ever.

Wrongside Bob centers around a drifter with amnesia struggling to remember his past. He runs into Bob, a person desperately trying to forget his. With the help of some of the oddball regulars in the local roadhouse, both men achieve a measure of peace after facing troubles along the way.

"Wrongside Bob wears a mask. Like most of us," says James Kahn. "We put on a public face to shield our inner personae from the world, and often from ourselves. That inner self can be scared, or wounded, or dark, or tender, or lost – but it's forged at our core, and we all have our reasons for keeping it hidden."

Kahn recently started an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign to raise funds to produce the film. He has created several funding goals for the project.

- 1st Goal of $85,000 will cover pre-production expenses.
- 2nd Goal of $265,000 will help start filming the movie.
- 3rd Goal of $395,000 will cover post-production expenses such as picture editing, sound editing, visual effects, Foley, etc.
- 4th Goal of $485,000 will help deliver the film to the distributors.
