Despite being a teenager, Luke Jaden’s fourth film, “King Ripple,” completed filming this year. What’s more, Jaden will star in the short alongside Keith Stanfield (“Short Term “12” and Snoop Dogg in “Straight Outta Compton”), who will portray the titular super-being.
While the trailer isn’t entirely clear on plot, it’s heavy on atmosphere. From the first shot of a floating bathtub to the fact that everything takes place in some urban wasteland, a good amount of focus was put on making the short surreal. A flash of a bloodied woman certainly hints at horror elements too.
