The world-renowned Pirates crew dropped us a line letting us know a few details about their latest release. Basti, Ludschi and co. are hunched over humming machines praying to Jah that nothing crashes, and all being well they’ll be dropping the teaser for Hooked in the next week or so. We’re always pumped to check out what these guys, the heaviest hitting Euro film crew around, come up with, so chop chop boys, let’s have the teaser bitte…
Here’s how they break it down…
