A24 has released the official trailer for director Daniel Scheinert‘s film “The Death of Dick Long.”
From a screenplay by Billy Chew, director Daniel Scheinert (one half of the “Swiss Army Man” duo, better known as Daniels), balances comedy and heartache, and what happens when dark secrets are dragged kicking and screaming into the light.
Featuring an ensemble of Southerners that include Jess Weixler (“Teeth”), Sarah Baker (Netflix’s “The Kominsky Method”), Roy Wood Jr. (Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah”), and Sunita Mani (Netflix’s “GLOW”), the trailer looks to offer plenty for audiences to mull over.
The film also boasts a soundtrack with songs by Staind, Creed, Nickleback, and an original score by Andy Hull and Robert McDowell of Manchester Orchestra.
A24 lists the synopsis as:
Holy Crap. Dick is dead. Died last night after band practice, and his bandmates, Zeke & Earl (Michael Abbott, Jr. & Andre Hyland), don’t want anybody finding out how. That’s too bad though, ‘cause news travels fast in small town Alabama, and these guys suck at covering their tracks. The authorities haven’t ID’d the body just yet, but Zeke’s wife (Virginia Newcomb) and his daughter are suspicious already.
“The Death of Dick Long” is scheduled to open in theaters on Sept. 27.
