Meet the New Stars of the Next Bigfoot Comedy

Left to Right: Oscar (Adam Herschman), Samson (Neil Flynn), Nigel (Paul Brittain)

The movie is called Nigel & Oscar vs. The Sasquatch and is set to be released in 2015. The story seems to pivot around two Bigfoot nerds, Nigel (Paul Brittain) and Oscar (Adam Herschman), who lose their guide while looking for Sasquatch. They compete against a rival named Claus (Tim Meadows).

It will be done in the style of a documentary comedy, but I love any excuse to use the portmanteau mockumentary (almost as much as I like to use the word portmanteau).

The official Synopsis written by the director Drew Hall:
Uber geeks Nigel and Oscar want nothing more than to capture definitive evidence of a Sasquatch. When their guide bails on them, they must resort to using a mis-matched group of outdoor enthusiasts. Meanwhile, their rival Claus, also on the hunt for the "Squatch", races to beat them to the prize in this documentary style comedy.
