Having tackled the Turkish remake of Star Wars, the creative minds at Filmusik move onto another Turkish adaptation of classic American cinema. Released in 1983—a time when Turkish audiences demanded blockbusters but political instability prevented Western movies from appearing in theaters—Vahşi Kan, Yerli Rambo copies the Sylvester Stallone movie almost exactly, though it adds bulldozers and, in an ahead-of-its-time touch, zombies. The script has been translated into English, to be performed by a cast of local voice-over actors. They’ll be joined onstage by musicians playing composer Justin Rall’s original orchestral soundtrack, and by foley artists, who’ll re-create the sound of each hand grenade and karate chop.
