IFC Films will release The Rental, Dave Franco’s chilling thriller co-written by Franco and Joe Swanberg day-and-date on July 24th. The film stars Alison Brie (Glow, Horse Girl, Promising Young Woman), Dan Stevens (Downton Abbey, Call of the Wild), Jeremy Allen White (Shameless) and Sheila Vand (A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night, Snowpiercer).
In The Rental, two couples embark on a weekend getaway to a seemingly perfect house they’ve booked online. But what begins as a celebratory weekend for the four close friends turns into something far more sinister as secrets they’ve kept from each other are exposed and they realize they may not be alone.
The Rental marks the directorial debut of Franco best known for his roles in the hit films such as Neighbors, 21 Jump Street, Now You See Me, and their successful sequels, as well as in the critically acclaimed independent films The Little Hours, The Disaster Artist, and If Beale Street Could Talk.
