It looks like Dave Franco is trying to follow in the footsteps of John Krasinski. As you all know, Krasinski directed/co-wrote the horror-thriller A Quiet Place back in 2018. The movie starred his wife Emily Blunt.
Franco is attempting to do something very similar. He will be making his directorial debut with the thriller film ‘The Rental‘ starring his wife, Alison Brie.
In the film, Brie co-stars alongside Dan Stevens as a couple who set out on a double date vacation with two of their friends.
But things take a turn for the unsettling when secrets start to come out and it starts to feel like the four friends might not be alone.
Franco co-wrote the script for this film with Joe Swanberg, the creator of the Netflix series, Easy, which Franco acted in.
IFC Films purchased the rights to the film this week and for right now, they plan to release it on July 24, 2020.
Franco released the following statement:
I’ve admired the IFC brand and their films for as long as I can remember. I couldn’t be more excited about partnering with them for my directorial debut. They have such a strong track record when it comes to elevated genre films, which makes them the perfect home for THE RENTAL.
