Johnny Thunders was a prominent musician in the 70s. He was a guitarist, singer, and songwriter that played with the New York Dolls, The Heartbreakers, Faces, and even embarked on solo projects. Above all, Thunders was a punk rock guy at heart who grew up in the prime time of The Rolling Stones, The Who, and The Small Faces, all of which influenced Thunders’ musical career. But one thing that is still not certain is Thunder’s mysterious death that took place on April 23, 1991, in New Orleans.
Cleopatra Entertainment has produced a supernatural horror-thriller film about the Thunders rock n’ roll lifestyle; music, drugs, and love, with a whirlwind of chaos that ultimately leads into his unexpected death. The film is written and directed by the Cordero Brothers: Vicente Cordero and Fernando Cordero Caballero, produced by Shanti Whitney, executive produced by Brian Perera, Yvonne Perera, and co-produced by Tim Yasui.
