Seems like, the plans for making a feature film are not dead at all! The project is moving along! What's more, there is a trailer available (featuring scenes from the short movie). There are no news about the cast just yet, since the creators are still trying to get financial help to get things started.
You can download the trailer here: [4.7MB, avi. If you have problems with playing the file, install the VLC media player!] --> sendspace.com/file/2bl6ya
