The film, a teen comedy, is titled Beware The Gonzo, and is written and directed by Bryan Gobuloff (screenwriter for The Basketball Diaries).
It centers around Eddie “Gonzo” Gilman (Ezrah Miller) who starts an underground newspaper after being downsized from his post at his high school’s newspaper, when a more popular editor Gavin Riley (played by Jesse McCartney) gets the job. With help from a fearless “beautiful outsider” (played by Zoe Kravitz), the pair challenges Gavin and the rest of the so-called in-crowd.
Campbell Scott, Amy Sedaris, Juda Friedlander and Marc John Jefferies co-star.
The film was acquired by Tribeca Film Releasing earlier this year, and now has an official set of release dates; first, it will be available on VOD beginning on August 25, which will be followed by a limited theatrical release beginning in NYC on September 9.
And in anticipation of those dates, a trailer has been released which is embedded below, though Zoe Kravitz barely features in it, even though she’s listed as one of the film’s headliners.
