Looks like Clayne’s UK fans will be getting a late Christmas present!
“A riot of slick and sick Tarantino-style escapism” – Alan Jones,Film4 FrightFest
Get ready for some pulp action when The Baytown Outlaws hits Blu-ray and DVD in the UK this holiday season. Starring Billy Bob Thorton and Eva Longoria, the discs will hit the street on December 26th from Universal Pictures UK, so you know where you can spend your cash on Boxing Day! More details, including a ton of stills, can be found below.
Meet the Oodies, a trio of redneck hillbilly brothers whose main source of fun – and only source of employment – is illegally enforcing several unwritten laws on behalf of the local corrupt sheriff. When their latest job goes disastrously wrong and ends in a massacre at the wrong address, the brothers are approached by Celeste, a witness to the mayhem, with a proposal. She’s willing to pay them $25,000 for the safe return of her godson, who has been kidnapped by her ex-husband. What she fails to tell them is that the man in question is a ruthless mobster who believes Celeste is dead, having previously arranged for one of his goons to pump her full of lead.
Unsurprisingly, what should be a simple rescue mission soon turns into a southern fried battle royale of epic proportions as the brothers fall foul of a seemingly endless parade of psychopaths and miscreants who want them dead, ranging from a gang of crazy-ass biker chicks and a pack of ruthless road warriors to Federal agents, crooked cops and some very angry Native Americans.
Luckily my co-admin is in the UK so we’ll have some limited clips and screencaps up soon but since its not released on the big screen in the US yet. It will be released in early 2013 and we don’t want to post too much or people might not go see it in the theater! But if you’re in the UK, order you a DVD or BlueRay!
LLeju Productions’ action comedy formerly known as The Baytown Disco stars Billy Bob Thornton and Eva Longoria. Phase 4 plans a theatrical release in early 2013.
Phase 4’s Larry Greenberg and Katharyn Howe negotiated the deal with WME Global. Highland Film Group handles international sales.
Barry Battles directed from the Black List script he co-wrote with Griffin Hood about three ruthless Alabama brothers who invite trouble when they try to do a good deed. Production wrapped in Louisiana shortly before Cannes.
LLeju Production’s Bill Perkins financed and produced alongside Robert Teitel from State Street Pictures. Hood, Ryan Jones, Thomas J Busch and Mary Vernieu serve as executive producers.
“The Baytown Outlaws is an absolute crowd pleaser as it combines lots of action with sharp humour led by an amazing group of actors,” Phase 4 president and CEO Berry Meyerowitz said. “We are thrilled to join the team and share the film with audiences.”
“With Phase 4, we’ve found the perfect home for The Baytown Outlaws,” Perkins said. “Barry’s direction combined with brilliant performances from our cast, have resulted in an edgy, funny and highly entertaining and commercial film.”
Although its not completed or even fully designed, I’m opening the video gallery mainly because YouTube keeps blocking videos on our channel. Apparently you can’t upload anything by NBC, CBS, Fox, FX, A&E, etc. (don’t even get me started about YouTube’s blocking policies!) That leaves out a great deal of Clayne’s TV roles in addition to some movies that are owned by their parent companies! So ALL uploads will be on the Clayne Crawford Fans Video Channel. There is also a section for fanvideos so if you’ve made a fanvideo with Clayne in it, please feel free to join the video channel and upload it!
Clayne has agreed to answer fan questions so here’s your opportunity to ask! I don’t have all the details yet about how he’ll answer (video? on here? etc) but I will post when I know. Please keep your questions respectful. If we deem the question to be intrusive on his personal life, we’ll contact you but will not forward the question to him. So keep it clean folks and let them roll! Make sure to include your email address. It won’t show on the post but I will see it from the admin page. Otherwise I won’t be able to let you know how he’s going to answer!
Also, for anyone following @claynecrawford on Twitter – its not really him. That person hasn’t tweeted anything yet anyway but just wanted to let you know that its not him. He also said he doesn’t have a Facebook page. A far as I know there is only one ‘fan’ one in addition to ours and she states that it IS a fan & doesn’t claim to be him but if you see someone claiming to be him, its a fake.

There are buyer screenings tonight in LA and New York for The Baytown Disco, an action movie whose trailer found its way out today. Billy Bob Thornton and Eva Longoria star in the story about three infamously ruthless Alabama brothers who find themselves on the wrong side of a wild cast of characters when they finally try to do a single good deed. William O. Perkins optioned the script through his LLeju Productions banner and financed and produced alongside Robert Teitel of State Street Pictures. Barry Battles directed the Black List script he co-wrote with Griffin Hood.
The rousing rebel spirit of a family of Southern thugs takes off at breakneck speed in “The Baytown Disco” — a wickedly playful, high-velocity action-comedy in which three infamously ruthless Alabama brothers find themselves on the wrong side of crooked cops, relentless Feds, mad mobsters, road pirates, tomahawk-wielding bikers, tricky femme fatales and an unforgettable cast of characters as colorful as they are lethal when they finally try to do a single good deed.
Academy Award® winner Billy Bob Thornton and Golden Globe winner Eva Longoria headline this wildly explosive, yet ultimately moving, tale of honor breaking out among thieves with madcap results. It all starts when the fetching Celeste (Longoria) has a falling out with her nefarious ex-husband Carlos (Thornton) who kidnaps her beloved son, Rob (Thomas Brodie Sangster). Knowing her ex can be a maniacal psychopath, not to mention a bit trigger-happy, she turns for help to the most bad-ass, lawless hit-man trio in Alabama: the Oodie Brothers.
Ringleader Brick (Clayne Crawford, “24,” “The Glades”), mute wrestling phenom Lincoln (Daniel Cudmore, “The Twilight Saga”), and the baby of the brothers, the kick-ass G.I. McQueen (Travis Fimmel, “The Beast”) are known for being mean as a bag of rattlesnakes –and measly kidnap rescues are not on their menu of services. But when Brick is unexpectedly moved by Celeste’s plight, what he thinks is going to be an easy smash-and-grab job turns out to be the most hair-raising and hilariously intense adventure of his and his brothers’ harrowing careers.
Suddenly the Oodies have their hometown Sheriff (Andre Braugher, “Men of a Certain Age,” “Salt”), in a tangle; a pesky DEA Agent (Paul Wesley, “Vampire Diaries”) on their trail, and Carlos and his heinous assortment of henchman out for their hides. With no one quite who or what they seem, they are headed for a showdown — and a shot at redemption — they never saw coming.
