The first trailer for Dave Franco’s directorial debut, “The Rental”, has just dropped. It comes from IFC Films, which picked up the title earlier this year for a July 2020 release.
The film stars Alison Brie and Dan Stevens as a young couple out on vacation with friends, played by Sheila Vand and Jeremy Allen White. Unbeknownst to them, there are cameras hidden in the beautiful rental house they’re BnB-ing in, and their host is keen to murder.
The Rental is a character-driven horror thriller about two couples who rent a vacation home for what should be a celebratory weekend get-away.
Franco has partnered up with Joe Swanberg – a filmmaker who’s at least been in close proximity with the genre, be that appearing in home invasion thrillers (“You’re Next”) or penning particularly erotic ones (“24 Exposures”) – as co-writer and producer.
You can watch the full trailer for “The Rental” below. It opens in theaters and on-demand on July 24, 2020.
