Pop Star Assassin


A lysergic trip to the center of American CONSPIRANOIA. The year is 1977. The King is dead. The world mourns.

But, when a mysterious briefcase turns up in his dressing room, Bruce, a coke-addled Elvis impersonator finds himself wedged between a Mob boss out to avenge the death of his only son, and a government conspiracy with far-reaching, world-ending ramifications, all in an attempt to discover the true identity of his father’s killer.

Questioning whether or not his entire life up until that very moment has been a lie, Bruce sets out on a mission to discover the truth behind his own identity and that of his father, throwing him headlong into the heart of a government conspiracy perpetrated by a shadow agency, known only as, The Studio. Their endgame, world domination at the hands of an unstoppable army of dead celebrity Look-A-Like© robot assassins.

With his life unraveling around him, Bruce joins forces with a rag tag troupe of unlikely misfits willing to do whatever it takes to uncover the truth and make those responsible pay. Fighting their way to The Studio’s inner sanctum, Bruce and company set into motion a chain of events that lead them to a final confrontation with The Director, a mysterious, nigh omnipotent figure named, Nietzsche; forever transforming Bruce and leaving him a marked man on the run.

The year is 1977. The KING IS DEAD – LONG LIVE THE KING!
