    Sounds like they're currently working on it for a late 2012 theatrical release.

    Dolph, Goddard & co in ELECTRIC BOOGALOO: THE WILD, UNTOLD STORY OF CANNON FILMS

    Ed Pressman (legendary producer), Gary Goddard (director) and Stephen Tolkin (re-writer) will all be featured in Mark Hartley's upcoming feature documentary ELECTRIC BOOGALOO: THE WILD, UNTOLD STORY OF CANNON FILMS now in production.

    Mark Hartley is an Australian director who already made many DVD special and acclaimed documentaries on exploitation film like NOT QUITE HOLLYWOOD: THE WILD, UNTOLD STORY OF OZPLOITATION FILMS! and MACHETE MAIDEN UNLEASHED! His first fiction feature film was the remake of PATRICK which is apparently pretty good.

    I've been looking forward to this ever since it's been announced - having Goddard in it makes me even more anxious.

    Really enjoyed "Not Quite Hollywood" (more so than "Machete Maidens"), especially since it treated a subject that's still "underground" even with the "Grindhouse"-craze of the last couple of years. Being a fan of Brian Trenchard Smith might've helped, too

    This has been in the works for a few years now... has there actually been any progress on it? Or is it still just "announced"?

    Ah... nevermind. Just clicked that link and see via their Facebook page that the interviews have just begun this month. Still, it should come together pretty quickly. Wonder if this will see a premier at Fantastic Fest in September this year?

    It took a while to start for two reasons, one because of financing issues and two because Hartley directed PATRICK in between.

    Albert Pyun just announced on Fb he'll be doing an interview for it.
    I'll be doing the Cannon doc interview (Electric Boogaloo: The Untold story of Cannon Films) on Saturday after a MRI on Friday. I think I made more films for Cannon than any other director beginning with 1985's DANGEROUSLY CLOSE and finishing with 1988's CYBORG. In between I did DOWN TWISTED (1986), ALIEN FROM L.A. (1987), JOURNEY TO THE CENTER OF THE EARTH (1987) and DECEIT (1988). I prepped or shot early tests for MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE 2 (1988) and SPIDER-MAN (1988).

    Yeah, it took them time to complete financing, and in between the director made last year's remake of Oz exploitation flick PATRICK, so they've only started shooting the interviews this past Spring and completed the film earlier end of July/early August.

    For the Brits it's presented at the BFI London festival October 9th and 11th

    Very candid interview with director Mark Hartley
    http://www.craveonline.com/film/interviews/762961-fantastic-fest-2014-mark-hartley-electric-boogaloo
    I have to be honest and say that the film is very different than the film I thought it would be. I read your review where you mentioned it’s mean-spirited. I don’t think it’s mean-spirited at all actually. From the feedback I’ve gotten, people say it’s actually very fair to what it was like working with Cannon. I think it’s more candid, honest and irreverent than mean-spirited. Certainly yeah, the project did change because I thought there’d be far more of an inspirational story. I thought it was going to be a David Vs. Goliath story. And then when we actually interviewed the people, the other thing about this documentary that I think people should realize is that everyone we interviewed were people who worked at Cannon. They were all there in the trenches. They were all there beside Menahem and Yoram. These aren’t fans, these aren’t historians. These are all people who were all there giving their firsthand impressions. I think you won’t find a more honest documentary about Cannon. So what changed was I thought it would be a very inspirational David vs. Goliath story but when you actually talk to the people who were there, it turns into far more of a cautionary tale.

    Saw it over the weekend and it's such a great doc! The MOTU stuff is minimal and comes towards the end, but there's a nice chunk devoted to that whole era (MOTU, Superman IV, Over The Top) which was basically the end times for Cannon Films. Dolph says he felt pretty silly doing the whole thing, there's a funny story about Stallone remarking to someone in regards to Dolph being cast as He-Man: "You're giving HIM LINES?" that cracked the whole audience up. It's a must-see for folks who grew up on stuff like Ninja III: The Domination, Lifeforce, etc being shown on HBO in the '80s. Plus, it's just fun to see the MOTU clips integrated with all the other stuff up there on the big screen.

    Maybe I'll just import the dvd then, I wouldn't mind seeing it at the flicks but I doubt I could get anyone to go with me. Cheers for the info though.
