Young Jack Sparrow Actor Is Vengeful Killer in 'Johnny Gruesome' Trailer
Teenagers can be rebellious, but Johnny Gruesome takes that to a whole new level.
Heat Vision has the exclusive first trailer for the film, which is based on writer-director Gregory Lamberson's 2007 novel, which was actually based on a screenplay he wrote in 1984 when he was just 19.
The story centers on rebellious teenager Johnny Grissom, who is murdered during a drunken joy ride. His friends attempt to make his death look like an accident, but Johnny has other ideas — he returns from the dead as a supernatural creature to seek revenge.
Anthony De La Torre, who played a young Jack Sparrow in this summer's Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tale, stars as Johnny. The film is from Red Hell Movies LLC, Slaughtered Lamb Productions and JFR Productions and is currently seeking distribution.
