Quaids make Star Whackers film

The Quaids are fighting for refugee status in Canada after fleeing the U.S. following a series of bizarre run-ins with the law.

An arrest warrant for the couple was issued last year (10) after the actor and his wife failed to show up in court to face charges of trespassing and vandalism after they were found living in the guest house of a property they formally owned. The pair claimed the house was illegally sold.

While battling for immigration status in late 2010, Brokeback Mountain star Quaid revealed he and his wife had fled to Canada to escape the “star whackers” who were preying on stars like him and Mel Gibson.

The actor has written a song about his mysterious enemies and now the couple have put together a docudrama chronicling its escape to Canada, according to the Globe and Mail newspaper.

The film, entitled Star Whackers, will screen on 22 April (11) and loosely follows a plotline where shadowy forces are trying to murder Randy Quaid to steal his star power for themselves, according to CinemaBlend.com.

A statement from Evi Quaid reads, “For the first time I would like an audience reaction to my art as a work in progress, so I may understand its content through other eyes.”
