“The Family Fang” follows the adult siblings Baxter and Annie Fang (Jason Bateman and Nicole Kidman), the children of Caleb and Camille Fang (Christopher Walken and Maryann Plunkett), two world-famous performance artists who used their young children in surprise, often disturbing public interactive art exhibitions. When Caleb and Camille go missing, Baxter and Annie return to their family home after years of being estranged to investigate their disappearance, and to discover if it’s a ruse or if it’s genuine. Watch an exclusive clip from the film below featuring a performance art piece with a young Caleb and Camille (played by Jason Butler Harner and Kathryn Hahn respectively) berating their children in the park for being terrible at playing music.
“The Family Fang” is directed by actor Jason Bateman. Starting his career as a child actor in sitcoms like “Silver Spoons” and “The Hogan Family,” Bateman eventually garnered much acclaim for his lead role as Michael Bluth in Mitchell Hurwitz’s groundbreaking sitcom “Arrested Development.” In recent years, he has starred in many films including “Horrible Bosses,” “The Change-Up,” and “Identity Thief.” He recently received widespread praise for his role in the thriller “The Gift” and his voice performance in “Zootopia.” “The Family Fang” is Bateman’s second directorial effort following the dark comedy “Bad Words,” about a middle-aged eighth grade dropout who enters a spelling bee through a loophole.
“The Family Fang” is available on DVD on July 5th from Anchor Bay Entertainment. It’s currently available on iTunes and VOD.
