The Machine Synopsis
Set 23 years after the original story which inspired it, The Machine finds Bert (Bert Kreischer) facing familial crisis and the arrival of his estranged father (Mark Hamill) when the ghost of his booze-soaked past arrives: a murderous mobster (Iva Babić) hellbent on kidnapping Bert back to the motherland to atone for his crimes. Together, he and his father must retrace the steps of his younger self (Jimmy Tatro) in the midst of a war between a sociopathic crime family while they attempt to find common ground.

Set for release exclusively in theaters on May 26th, 2023, The Machine is directed by Peter Atencio, produced by Bert Kreischer, Cale Boyter, Judi Marmel, Peter Atencio, and LeeAnn Kreischer, with a screenplay written by Kevin Biegel and Scotty Landes.
