Despite the fact that Wesley Snipes won't be released from jail until July, VMI Worldwide is already attempting to sell his "Gallowwalkers" movie, which was shot in 2006 and never released.
Today we have the trailer for the movie, which will be promoted at the Berlin Film Market in March, but is still in need of re-shoots. It's likely that VMI is waiting for Snipes to get out of jail to complete the film.
"Gallowwalkers" is the story of a mysterious gunman, Aman (Snipes), the son of a nun, who breaks her covenant with God to ensure his survival. Her break with God curses her son to be hunted by all those who die by his hand - When he takes revenge on a gang that murdered his love, the gang rises as a cursed crew of undead warriors and hunt him mercilessly, seeking their "dying" revenge.

Perhaps I'm hallucinating, and that wouldn't surprise me, but I would have, could have, sworn I saw a Youtube trailer for this movie a few weeks back.

Yeah mink the trailer has been on YouTube for a while and this was released in a region 0 DVD a few years ago but it's now OOP.
Me and another member on here have seen it at Big Lots before.

Okay. Thanks for that, Deaft0ne. Thought maybe I was losing what little mind I have left. Haven't started hallucinating yet, I guess, but I've read hallucination is the last stage before picking up a rifle and hanging out the sixth floor of a book depository.
As for this movie, would have been a LOT cooler if they had aped Blade, made Snipes a total bad ass, set it in some creepy ghost town, chopped up a good soundtrack and given him a worthy villain.
This, well, just doesn't look like they wanted to take any real effort.

Lol and it also looks like they spent only 250k on it with 200k of that to pay Wesley.

You're probably not wrong on that one, Deaf0ne. You know Wes didn't do this movie for a song.
