Indie Rights has picked up ‘Unbelievable!!!!!’, a sci-fi parody film, produced by Snoop Dogg and featuring over 40 former ‘Star Trek’ cast members, and a puppet. The film will be screened for potential foreign distributors as part of the first virtual Cannes Film Festival.
‘Unbelievable!!!!!’ is “a Sci-Fi Parody Adventure which follows the crazy exploits of four off-beat astronauts (one is a marionette) who travel to the Moon on a rescue mission to determine the fate of two Space Agency comrades who have not been heard from in several days. The individuals they find at the Lunar Base are not whom they appear to be and nearly succeed in killing our heroes. Soon the astronauts find themselves trying to save the Earth from an invasion of Killer Plant Aliens!!”
Indie Rights CEO Linda Nelson announced via a statement:
“Indie Rights is so excited to be featuring UNBELIEVABLE!!!!! at Virtual Cannes. We’ll be screening the film for international buyers on June 24th. Snoop Dogg and Star Trek fans will love this plant-based, inter-galactic parody.”

Cmdr. Gary Mitchell), BarBara Luna (Marlena), Beverly Washburn (Arlene Galway), and Celeste Yarnall (Martha Landon).

Producer and star Angelique Fawcette stated:
“It has been a tremendous honor to produce Unbelievable!!!!! and to be able to be intentionally inclusive and share a powerful message of true diversity within our film, in front of and behind the camera. We are immensely grateful for the actors, actresses, and crew who made a choice to join us on this amazing journey. Throughout the arduous wait, and the ups and downs, we are now also very grateful to Indie Rights for believing in our little-big film.”
