Nic Cage is not 6'8". I'm pretty sure that 8 should be a zero.

Design and production of the weapon arrives through the wicked genius of Gary Tunnicliffe, an FX artist whose work has appeared in dozens of genre films, including Blade, Candyman and six Hellraiser films.
Shock caught up Tunnicliffe outside the film's prop trailer where, through the door, could just be made out bloody limbs and a partially-exploded human bust. He proudly pulled out the God Killer's faded carrying case, something that he said was as tricky to get right as the gun itself.
"I just thought that the God Killer, this mythical weapon in the film, should have a history when you see the case to it," he said, "I ended up spending an enormous amount of money making a case for it... Patrick was very specific. He said, 'The case should look like it's from Hell and has been through Hell and traveled a million miles."
Beginning with an 18th century Chinese attache case, Tunnicliffe tracked down (through the invaluable resource of Ebay) a number of antiquated items to base the age of the case off of, including Civil War-era gun holder, complete with dents, scratches and even a burned-on handprint.
Inside the case, surrounding the gun, is a set of special bullets. Supposedly made of a mythical material, the idea is that the actual shell is eternally hot and must be surrounded by a larger, glass covering filled with Holy Water. Inside the gun case is a set of tongs that Cage's character, Milton, uses to lift the bullet and smash them open right before loading the weapon.
Instead of a single rotating cylinder, the gun features five massive rotating barrels and is engraved on the hilt with the latin words for "God Killer", "Deus Iuguolo". From the ivory handle, engraved with demonic imagery, there hang a variety of "Anti-God" charms, lending a decidedly demonic bent to the weapon's firepower.
"The original design had it 27 inches long, Tunnicliffe said, "I built a 27 inch version and it was ****ing ridiculous... It was like a hand cannon, so we ended up shrinking it down slightly."
Because of it's huge size, the gun (which Milton has from the film's start), was simply too big to be carried in a traditional holster. Instead, Tunnicliffe designed a body holster designed for a fast draw. Still, while elements of practicality factored into the design, one of the most important factors was that it stand as one of cinema's badass firearms.
"I geeked the **** out of it," Tunnicliffe laughed, "I wanted something that Nic would open for the first time and go, '****, that's a cool gun!'

What's funny (or not funny) about that story is that the case for the gun is on screen for a total of 3 seconds, in the back of a car, and partially obscured. He also never reloads it once in the whole movie.
The gun itself is without doubt the most interesting prop from the film. The movie is out on Blu Ray now so i'm sure someone will have better pictures.

Hope to see some props from the movie soon... Would love to have all, but especially the License plate, coin, Driver License, but I think I have to watch the movie again to have reference for all props again...

Heres some caps folks, im thinking of starting the god-gun prop soon....
Hope these help......

Where are all those scenes with the case from? I don't remember seeing that in the version I saw, it was barely on-screen at all.
May 15, 2011, 6:24 PM - Re: Drive Angry Props
In the the first copper/fbi scene, where he goes into phone booth.
And i think he never reloads because he says he only has 3 bullets.

so, is anyone gonna be making the coin seen in the film?

Even no-one with some talent in his hands for the paper props?!?

Once I get into my new house I'm going to make an attempt of the gun and femur cane

just got the 3D BR last week and this movie is really hilarious. The FBI ID should be pretty easy, there are a lot of readymade FBI badges around (e.g. on ebay) just put William Fichtner's photo in and sign with 'The accountant' (not bookmaker...)
Jul 15, 2011, 4:06 AM - Re: Drive Angry Props
I would love to have a replica of that gun.....someone please make it!
Jul 30, 2011, 7:05 PM - Re: Drive Angry Props
I think the gun was at Comic Con. Did anyone take pics?
Aug 16, 2011, 2:44 AM - Re: Drive Angry Props
I want to give the gun a go to. Might start checking this out after my examns...
Oh and the bone cane is mentioned in the movie as the femor bone (however you write that) of Milton's killed daughter. I'll pull of some better pictures when I get home tonight for those interested

I am starting to build a godkiller prop gun, this is my first build so be gentle. It will be done, i hope, by the end of february 2012.
I need advice. The little ornaments on the side of the barrel, how would one go about creating something so small and detailed, what is the best technique?
Here is the blueprint in metric measurements.
