Starz Digital Media has dropped the first official trailer for The Family Fang, director Jason Bateman’s film about adult siblings searching for their missing parents. He also stars alongside Nicole Kidman.
The pair play Baxter and Annie, who are scarred from an unconventional upbringing but return to their family home after an unlikely accident. When their parents (Christopher Walken and Maryann Plunkett) — performance artists famous for elaborate public hoaxes — suddenly go missing under troubling circumstances, Baxter and Annie investigate. Unsure whether it’s foul play or just another elaborate ruse, nothing can prepare them for what they discover. Check out the new poster below.
Based on the novel by Kevin Wilson, The Family Fang was scripted by Pulitzer-winning Rabbit Hole playwright-screenwriter David Lindsay-Abaire. The producers are Daniela Lundberg, Riva Marker, Leslie Urdang, Dean Vanech, Nicole Kidman, Per Saari, Bateman and James Garavente.
The Family Fang is Bateman’s follow-up to his directorial debut Bad Words (2013). Starz acquired the new pic a few weeks after its premiere at Toronto last year, and the pic is set to screen at Tribeca this month. It will hit theaters April 29 in limited release, followed by a national rollout and VOD bow on May 6.
