Penn GillettePenn Jillette is looking to make a movie, and he needs your help, or at least that is what he’s saying on crowdfunding site fundanything.com. Penn and his co-creator, Director Adam Rifkin are looking to raise $999,972 in about 45 days to produce “Director’s cut” which Jillette describes in his pitch as a ‘creepy,scary, intelligent” film.

Gillette further explains, “Director’s commentaries on movies have been popular as DVD and Blu-ray “extras” long enough that all movie-goers are familiar with the conceit.  In fact, movie fans have come to expect them from all of their favorite films and filmmakers.  “Director’s Cut” utilizes this collective audience knowledge for a new kind of meta, multileveled plot.”

Penn is “bribing” potential backers with an assortment of rewards, everything from copies of the script to t-shirts to VIP weekends in Vegas and opportunities to be a producer or extra on the film. You can find out more about the campaign here.
