2 Beloved Sagas. 2 Amazing Actors. 60 Ridiculous Characters.
From the creators of the hit comedy MacHomer comes a hilarious new parody: GAME of CLONES. Featuring 2 beloved sagas, 2 amazing actors, and 60 ridiculous characters. It’s a mash-up of epic proportions, written and directed by Rick Miller and Craig Francis. GAME of CLONES is a collision of the sublime and the ridiculous, of Sci-Fi and Fantasy, of knights getting their hands cut off, and… of knights getting their hands cut off. From high-tech multimedia, to low-brow humour, you’ll find it all: space, ice, fire, sex, and murder. Touring all seven kingdoms and galaxies far, far away…
