A brand new trailer and movie poster for the Trent O’Donnell-directed comedy Ride the Eagle has been revealed.
Ride the Eagle stars Jake Johnson (New Girl, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-verse), Susan Sarandon (Thelma & Louise), J.K. Simmons (Whiplash, Spider-Man, and D’Arcy Carden (The Good Place, Barry). Director O’Donnell and Johnson wrote the film. Decal will handle distribution.
Here is a description of the upcoming comedy:
“When Leif’s (Jake Johnson) estranged mother Honey (Susan Sarandon) dies she leaves him a ‘conditional inheritance’. Before he can move into her picturesque Yosemite cabin, he has to complete her elaborate, and sometimes dubious, to-do list. Leif and Nora, his canine BFF, step into Honey’s wild world as she tries to make amends from beyond the grave in this hilarious and heartfelt comedy.”
Ride the Eagle will premiere in theaters, on demand, and at digital storefronts on July 30, 2021.
Much of O’Donnell’s past work is in television. The Australian director has worked on a plethora of television series including Saved by the Bell (2020), A.P. Bio, New Girl, and Review with Myles Barlow.
Ride the Eagle star Johnson is probably most known for his role as Nick on New Girl. More recently, he has appeared on the television series Hoops and Stumptown. He will also be featured in the upcoming film Jurassic Park: Dominion alongside Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard.
