Ahead of its world premiere at Fantastic Fest this week, we’ve got our first look at psychedelic rollercoaster The Wave. Starring fan favourite Justin Long, The Wave is the debut feature of director Gille Klabin.
Long plays Frank, an insurance lawyer with no time for moral scruples.
The official synopsis reads:
“(Frank) 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.”
The Wave is written and produced by Carl W. Lucas. The film stars Justin Long, Donald Faison, Tommy Flanagan, Sheila Vand, Katia Winter and Ronnie Gene Blevins. It is set to world-premiere at Austin’s Fantastic Fest on September 21 2019.
