First there was John Krasinski directing his wife Emily Blunt in ‘A Quiet Place‘ and now you have Dave Franco directing his wife Alison Brie in his upcoming directoral debut, The Rental.
Franco reportedly co-wrote the script with Joe Swanberg. Not much is known about the plot, but we do know it’s a horror flick centering on two couples who rent a vacation home for a celebratory weekend.
In addition to Brie, Dan Stevens has joined the cast. He has experience in the indie horror world. He played the lead role in the surprisingly delightful 2014 film, The Guest.
Franco told Deadline he “couldn’t be more excited… to be working with such an amazing group of actors for my directorial debut.”
Shooting is expected to begin in April in Oregon. No word on a release date, but it’ll likely be in 2020 sometime. Or who knows, maybe they’ll move fast and release it late this year for Halloween. We’ll keep you posted.
