Ahead of its release this August, a red band trailer and images have been released for the upcoming thriller Spree which stars Stranger Things’ Joe Keery as a rideshare driver who will stop at nothing to gain social media attention and attempts to gain infamy by going on a brutal rampage, until a stand-up comedian (Sasheer Zamata) with her own agenda tries to put a stop to his misguided carnage. Take a look at the images here…
Meet Kurt (Joe Keery), a 23-year-old rideshare driver for Spree, who is so desperate for social media attention that he’ll stop at nothing to go viral. He comes up with a plan to livestream a rampage as a shortcut to infamy – coining his evil scheme “#thelesson”, he installs a set of cameras in his car and begins streaming his rides. Wildly miscalculating the popularity that would come from his lethal scheme, Kurt’s desperation grows as he tries to find a way to overcome the plan’s flaws. In the middle of all this madness, a stand-up comedian (Sasheer Zamata) with her own viral agenda crosses Kurt’s path and becomes the only hope to put a stop to his misguided carnage.
Directed by Eugene Kotlyarenko, the film features a cast that also includes Mischa Barton, John DeLuca, Josh Ovalle, Lala Kent, Frankie Grande, Kyle Mooney and David Arquette .
Spree is set for release on August 14th.
