Not to be confused with the 2015 Norwegian film of the same name, Gille Klabin's directorial debut The Wave is set to world premiere at Fantastic Fest in Austin, and today we have the official trailer to share with you.
The Wave will screen on September 21st at the Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar, and will be released at a later date by Epic Pictures.
In the film, Frank (Justin Long), an opportunistic insurance lawyer, thinks he’s in for the time of his life when he goes out on the town to celebrate a soon-to-be promotion with his co-worker, Jeff (Donald Faison), but their night takes a turn for the worst when Frank is dosed with a hallucinogen that alters his perception and changes his life forever. He is thrown into a psychedelic quest through board meetings, nightclubs, shootouts, and alternate dimensions. As Frank ping-pongs across reality, he finds himself on a mission to find a missing girl, himself… and his wallet.
Written and produced by Carl W. Lucas, The Wave also stars Tommy Flanagan (Braveheart, Sin City), Sheila Vand (A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night, the upcoming "Snowpiercer" series) Katia Winter ("Sleepy Hollow" series) and Ronnie Gene Blevins (Joe, "True Detective").
The film was produced by Robert Dehn and Monte Young, and produced for EchoWolf by Lucas and Joshua Bunting. It was co-produced by Andrew P. Aguilar and Seth Farley, with Jason Bender, Suzanne Niedland and Kevin P. Towler as executive producers, and Brian Ankrum and Nia Kingsley as associate producers.
