Join us in completing production of WINGS HAUSER: WORKING CLASS ACTOR, the feature-length documentary of the life and career of renowned actor Wings Hauser. Dark Star Pictures will distribute the film, produced by La-La Land Entertainment, around the world upon its completion.
Directed by Rondo Award-Winning Steve Mitchell, director of the acclaimed Larry Cohen doc KING COHEN, WINGS HAUSER: WORKING CLASS ACTOR is a riveting ride through the exhilarating world of Wings Hauser, a man who turned his insatiable passion for acting, music, theater, writing and directing into a living wage that has carried him throughout the decades and up to the present moment.
Self-described as arriving in Hollywood “with thirty dollars and a box of pampers,” Wings Hauser forged ahead as a single parent armed with an unstoppable work ethic, earning himself a noteworthy career full of standout performances in films like VICE SQUAD, A SOLDIER’S STORY, TOUGH GUYS DON’T DANCE, THE INSIDER and TALES FROM THE HOOD, among many others, and alongside compelling guest turns on a staggering amount of television series including BEVERLY HILLS 90210, CHINA BEACH, MURDER SHE WROTE, CASTLE, THE A-TEAM and ROSEANNE among countless others. Recently, he starred in Cali Lili’s 2020 Oscar-qualified film EVE N’ GOD: THIS FEMALE IS NOT YET RATED.
And, as anyone renting VHS movies through the 80’s and 90’s is fully aware, Wings ruled the Video Store arena during its world-wide cultural heyday – a bonafide action star in dozens of popular titles such as DEADLY FORCE, L.A. BOUNTY, THE CARPENTER and many more, including LIVING TO DIE, SKINS and THE ART OF DYING, which he also directed.
Wings’ story is an exceptional one that gives us gritty insights into the truths of independent filmmaking and the great sacrifices made to entertain us all.
40+ hours of footage have already been shot with Wings and many personalities in his universe (Gary Swanson, Frances Fisher, Ed Zwick, Ernie Hudson, Rusty Cundieff, Alexandra Paul, James Whitmore Jr, Cali Lili, Larry Mollin, Kathleen Kinmont, Darcy DeMoss, Edward Scott and more) and we’re currently hard-at-work editing, but we’d love your help to secure even MORE great interviews as well as complete post-production – and your support means absolutely everything!
Whether you just want your own copy of the finished film, your name immortalized in the film’s end credits thanks, to attend the premiere or a festival screening, be a producer, be an on-camera interviewee yourself, or all of that and anything and everything in-between, we’ve got a great slate of rewards to entice you to jump in and be a part of completing and releasing this incredible project! Wings Hauser is a cultural legend and the time for WORKING CLASS ACTORis NOW!
