The creative minds behind Loitering With Intent know the perils of being a writer. Director Adam Rapp embraces the words of scribes Michael Godere and Ivan Martin, bringing to life a comedy that’s already set tongues wagging. Certain movies frame the profession, hobby or the downright obsession of writing in a neat bundle. Many of those movies never depict the reality of what it actually means to populate a life with words. So, a movie about writing a movie ought to really set the record straight once and for all, and today we’ve got a peek at the first trailer.
With a starry cast including Marisa Tomei, Sam Rockwell, Natasha Lyonne, Brian Geraghty, Isabelle McNally, Michael Godere, and Ivan Martin, the story revolves around a pair of unemployed actors. Struggling to make ends meet, they wangle a producer into thinking they’ve got a red hot script. With 10 days to deliver it to the man, they shoot off to stay with one of their sisters upstate.
In the preview, we see that the wannabe pair of scribblers are played by Godere and Martin, Loitering‘s actual writers, adding a wicked edge to what could be a less enticing trailer. It’s really all about the cast here, as this tribe know how to handle comedy and drama like seasoned pros.
Loitering With Intent arrives on VOD December 16th before heading to theatres in January 2015. Check out the trailer above and let us know what you think.
When out-of-work-actors Raphael (Ivan Martin) and Dominic (Michael Godere) hustle a prominent New York producer into believing they’ve written a hot movie script, they have 10 days to deliver the goods or lose their last opportunity for a big break. Hoping to escape the bustle of New York City to write in peace, the duo head to the upstate country home of Dom’s sister Gigi (Marisa Tomei). But their writer’s retreat descends into bacchanalian romp when Gigi’s hostile boyfriend Wayne (Sam Rockwell) and his younger brother Devon (Brian Geraghty) bring old flames and simmering grudges to a head for the group. As yearnings for love and familial dynamics threaten to derail their career-making opportunity, will Raph and Dom’s friendship survive the creative process?
