Former 80's punk band Black Flag member, radio host, author and overall multihyphenate, actor Henry Rollins has been at it the last few years with his forthcoming role in The Briefcase helmer Jason Krawczyk's new hyper-violent horror comedy, He Never Died. Filming began back in 2013 with a script from Krawczyk which centers on Rollins as a cannibal with a seemingly prolonged lifespan, whose life as a depressed loner is shaken when his past comes back in the form of a daughter he hadn't seen in years.
When you find yourself living forever, sure, the first 200, even 300 years might be one grand ball of parties and fornication, But who among us would stay interested after the first 1,000 years, let alone the first 10,000.
And that is where we find Jack, An immortal cannibal detached from humanity.
Depression and severe anti-social behavior has whittled down Jack’s existence to sleeping and watching television. Seeing the human race as little more than meat with a pulse, Jack has no interest to bond with anyone. There’s little purpose for him to make friends with someone he’d eventually eat or outlive by more than a millennia. The fuse is lit when Jack's past comes back to rattle him. Jack must now walk a tight rope of sobriety and try to eat as few people as possible in this violent tale of personal responsibility. As it turns out, there are very few reasons to live when you can’t die.
