The Outlaw Johnny Black Trailer: Black Dynamite Gets a Spiritual Successor

Michael Jai White has been talking about the possibility of revisiting his blaxploitation comedy Black Dynamite for years now, and although the movie did spawn an animated series on Adult Swim, fans haven’t stopped asking for a new movie as well. The good news is that a follow-up film is finally about to become a reality… the slightly unexpected news is that it won’t be a direct sequel. Instead, it will be a western called The Outlaw Johnny Black that functions as more of a “spiritual successor” to Black Dynamite. White is crowdfunding it through Indiegogo with a goal of $1 million and they’ve thrown together a rough trailer that mixes some of their ideas with footage from pre-existing cult classic westerns. If all goes well, this seems like it will once again walk the line between knowing parody and loving tribute. Except… does anyone support crowdfunded projects anymore? Check out the trailer after the jump and see what you think.
