Exclusive 'Raiders!' trailer: How two kids made the most ambitious fan movie of all time
How much did Eric Zala and Chris Strompolos love Raiders of the Lost Ark when they were kids? Enough that, back in the ’80s, they spent seven years producing a shot-for-shot remake of Indiana Jones’ debut adventure. The new documentary Raiders! details that remarkable accomplishment, as well as their recent reunion to shoot the one sequence from Steven Spielberg’s movie they were unable to film back in the day.
Raiders is directed by Jeremy Coon and Tim Skousen and will receive its world premiere on March 14 in Austin, Tx., at this year’s SXSW Festival. That premiere will be followed by a screening of Zala and Strompolos’ Raiders of the Lost Ark: The Adaptation.
