Joe Keery From ‘Stranger Things’ Set To Feature In Movie ‘Spree’
He's about to go on a killing 'spree'.
After making a strong impression as Steve Harrington in Netflix’s Stranger Things, Joe Keery is set to star in a vlog-style movie ‘Spree’. However, it’s not going to be anything like Stranger Things, or any movie we’ve ever seen.
Joe Keery features in a vlog-style movie
With Eugene Kotlyarenko as Director and Drake as Executive Producer (Yes, THAT Drake), Spree is a feature-length YouTube video. Moreover, it’s going to feature everything, including candid vape reviews, live-streaming, and murder rampages. It really is unlike we’ve ever seen.
Joe Keery will play a 23-year-old rideshare driver Kurt, who is desperate for social media attention. That’s about everything most of you will have in common with Keery’s character. Because he will go to any lengths to go viral.
The official synopsis of the movie on YouTube says:
Meet Kurt (Joe Keery), a 23-year-old rideshare driver for Spree, who is so desperate for social media attention that he’ll stop at nothing to go viral. He comes up with a plan to livestream a rampage as a shortcut to infamy – coining his evil scheme “#thelesson“, he installs a set of cameras in his car and begins streaming his rides. Wildly miscalculating the popularity that would come from his lethal scheme, Kurt’s desperation grows as he tries to find a way to overcome the plan’s flaws. In the middle of all this madness, a stand-up comedian (Sasheer Zamata) with her own viral agenda crosses Kurt’s path and becomes the only hope to put a stop to his misguided carnage.
Moreover, the trailer also included David Arquette and The OC‘s Mischa Barton. It’s a dark comedy genre movie, with a recognizable Joe Keery at the driver’s seat. It first premiered at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, with a cinema release planned for August 14, 2020. So, mark your calendars.
