Trailer: Michael Shannon Is Bigfoot In “Pottersville”

Michael Shannon is one of the most talented actors of our generation, but every now and then he’ll make an odd choice – case in point the new indie comedy “Pottersville” which just released today.

Shannon both stars and serves as executive producer on the film about a struggling store owner who, during a late-night drunken wander through town, is mistaken for the legendary Bigfoot which sets off an international media spectacle and attracting a lot of much needed business for the town.

Also onboard are Thomas Lennon as a TV ‘monster hunter’, Ron Perlman as a sheriff, and other greats like Judy Greer and Ian McShane in supporting roles. Seth Henrikson helms the film which has yet to set a release date.
