Young people doing bad things is a familiar trope in indie flicks, featuring in everything from “The Rules Of Attraction” to “Cruel Intentions” to “The Informers” and more. Amber Heard has already been down that path as the star of “The Informers,” and once again it looks like she’ll be in a film where everyone seems just a little bit crooked.
Following the arguably amateur-ish trailer released last month, a few more pics from “Syrup” have landed online. Co-starring Shiloh Fernandez and Kellan Lutz, and directed by Aram Rappaport, the story follows Scat (Fernandez) who discovers the idea for a new soda beverage named Fukk Cola. “The fucking American Dream in a can,” he says. He pitches it to 6 (yes, that’s her name, and she’s played by Heard), the production manager at Coke, who agrees that it has massive potential to make them rich. But Scat’s roommate Sneaky Pete sees this opportunity for wealth and corporate ascension, steals the idea and takes it to the bigwigs himself. Love, sex and fights all ensue in what is supposed to be a zinger directed at the business world, but we’ll see what the end result is.
No word on when it might hit, but with Sundance around the corner, and promo material building up, that festival is probably a safe bet. Check all the pics below. [Kinopoisk]
