Above is the trailer for Searching For Sonny, an indie crime comedy noir featuring a ton of familiar faces from network TV brought together by first time feature director Andrew Disney. It’s clearly a low-budget, indie effort, but it’s sharp looking, clearly energetic, and looks to feature some visually fun stuff. It’s a TUGG-able film if you’d like to bring the flick to a theatre near you, and it will hit DVD/Blu/VOD on August 28th.
Below CHUD is presenting an exclusive clip from the film, and I’m happy to say it’s a decently-sized chunk of a scene that might actually give you an idea of the kind of humor in store. Enjoy and be sure to use the link above to pre-order the film.
SEARCHING FOR SONNY is a hilarious comedy that follows reunited friends, Elliott (Jason Dohring), Calvin (Nick Kocher) and Eden (Minka Kelly), who find themselves chief suspects in a murder mystery at their ten-year high school reunion. Ironically, the events surrounding the disappearance of their friend Sonny (Masi Oka), is reminiscent of a high school play they once performed, coincidentally written by Sonny himself. Deception leads to scandal and the truth surfaces as the friends learn that shady businessmen and school officials are involved in a complex scheme of money and murder.
