Reflects the new name change – from Baytown Disco to Baytown Outlaws:
19 June, 2012 | By Jeremy Kay
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.
Here’s the official synopsis from Collider
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.
The Truth in Being Right, a short film with Clayne Crawford in it, is going to be screened at the Buffalo Niagara Film Festival where it is nominated in their 2012 Short Film Category.

After his death, a legendary Rock Star is replaced by a look-a-like when his two brothers attempt to continue benefiting from his success.
More about the film:
It’s 1975; Frankie Right is the biggest rock star on the face of the planet – bigger than Zeppelin bigger than the Stones. He’s managed by his older brother Mel and his younger brother Jake. These are three brothers from the back woods of Louisiana, raised from nothing. Now that Frankie has paved the way for them, they’ve grown accustomed to their wealthy lives and refuse to return to having nothing. There’s one problem though, their cash cow brother, Frankie just died from a heroin overdose.Mel the quick thinking older brother knows that without Frankie they’re nothing, so he devises a plan to find a look-a-like to replace Frankie and keep the cash flow steady. The replacement is Jimmy Foreman, a Frankie Right look-a-like contest winner who accepts the offer as his “big break”.
With Jimmy in Frankie’s place, he quickly realizes that he can never be famous on his own terms. Jimmy loses his cool and begins to destroy the Frankie Right Legacy. The brothers don’t take kindly to this and seek another replacement. How many replacements will it take before they find the right one? That’s the question we’re left with in The Truth in Being Right.
