Netflix has released the trailer for its original comic crime thriller “Shimmer Lake,” starring Rainn Wilson, Benjamin Walker and Wyatt Russell. The film marks the directorial debut of “22 Jump Street” and “Mortal Kombat: Rebirth” writer Oren Uziel.
Written by Uziel, “Shimmer Lake” follows local sheriff Zeke Sikes (Walker) as he attempts to untangle the mystery of three small-town criminals and a bank robbery gone wrong. Wilson plays Andy, the sheriff’s brother who recklessly attempts to rob a bank, and the two unknowingly embark on a game of cat-and-mouse. The story, which involves many shady characters, is told backwards, reversing day by day through a week. The film also stars Rob Corddry, Ron Livingston, Stephanie Sigman, Adam Pally, John Michael Higgins, Mark Rendall, Angela Vint and Isabelle Dove as Andy’s daughter Sally.
