Random Media has acquired all domestic rights to the new musical thriller, Dead Envy. The film is the directorial debut from Harley Di Nardo, who co-wrote the script with Stacy Hullah. The film, about an aging rock star that gets in over his head when he meets the perfect protégé, premiered at the Hollywood Reel Independent Film Festival. The film is scheduled for a limited theatrical release this fall, followed by VOD. To celebrate the announcement, Random Media has released a brand-new trailer.
I kind of have a thing for music-themed genre flicks, so I’m intrigued by the idea of this. Check out the trailer and see if this tune strikes a chord with you.
“Aging Rock artist David Tangier’s sense of identity is all but destroyed as he works cutting hair to provide a comfortable life for himself and his wife. His sound and age bind him to the Rock of the 2000’s, where his band Katatonic Spin once ruled the scene. David cannot tolerate that his entire existence has fallen prey to the persona of “the has been.”
By taking one last long shot at maintaining his integrity, David sets out to organize the follow-up album that he never had the chance to make. When Javy Bates, a mysterious young musical talent shows up for a job at David’s salon, this Rocker thinks he has found a solution to his alienation. Initially guarded, Javy soon opens up… as he has an agenda of his own.”
