A new trailer has been dropped for the queer dramedy “Funny Story” starring Matthew Glave, Emily Bett Rickards, and Jana Winternitz.
Glave, best known for his roles in Frank Coraci’s “The Wedding Singer,” Ben Affleck’s “Argo,” and FX’s hit-show “Better Things,” plays the role of Walter Campbell, an aging TV star that attempts to break up with his younger girlfriend before he finds out she’s pregnant. He ends up connecting with his estranged daughter Kim, played by Rickards, best known for roles in John Crowley’s “Brooklyn” and the CW’s “Arrow.”
The film is directed by Michael Gallagher, who also co-writes the screenplay along with Steve Greene. Gallagher also serves as a producer of the film, along with co-star Winternitz, and Michael Wormser.
One of the exciting bits of the film, along with its large cast is the inclusion of Reginald VelJohnson, best known as the fun-loving Carl Winslow on ABC’s classic sitcom “Family Matters.”
Other cast members include Nikki Limo, Lily Holleman, Jessica Diggins, Aschleigh Jensen, Jacob Wysocki, and Pete Gardner.
You can view the new trailer up above or down below, along with images released from the film.
“Funny Story” opens in select theaters and On Demand May 24.
