EXCLUSIVE: Directors Ben Brewer and Alex Brewer, whose drama The Trust starring Nicolas Cage and Elijah Wood premiered at SXSW this spring, have signed with Verve. The pic, about a pair of corrupt cops who discover a strangely hidden and guarded safe filled with mysterious contents, was the pair’s first feature film. Ben Brewer also wrote it with Adam Hirsch.
The Brewers had been successful helming music videos before their feature break, including shooting for Drop The Lime (“No Sleep For The Wicked”), Purity Ring (“Belispeak”), Steve Aoki featuring Lovefoxxx (“Heartbreaker”) and Skylar Grey (“Final Warning”) among others. They won an MTV Award last year with the video for Justin Bieber’s “Where Are U Now.”
The Trust is streaming on DirecTV and rolls out in theaters and VOD today via Saban Films.
Here’s the trailer for it:
