THE RENTAL First Look: Dave Franco's Debut Hits in July

By John Connor [04.29.20]


Two couples looking to celebrate their seed money from a new business venture, embark on a weekend getaway to a seemingly perfect house they’ve booked online. But what begins as a festive weekend for the four close friends turns into something far more sinister as secrets they’ve kept from each other are exposed and paranoia grows that they may not be alone.

Co-written by Dave Franco and mumblecore legend Joe Swanberg, THE RENTAL features an all-star cast including Dan Stevens, Alison Brie, Sheila Vand and Jeremy Allen.

The film also marks the directorial debut of Dave Franco.

IFC Films will release THE RENTAL in theaters and on demand July 24th.






Franco will next be seen starring in the Quibi limited series “The Now” releasing May 18th; and recently directed a national spot for the Rimowa x Garrett Leight collaboration.

He is best known for his roles in the hit films “Neighbors,” “21 Jump Street,” “Now You Can See Me,” and their successful sequels, as well as in the critically acclaimed independent films “The Little Hours,” “The Disaster Artist,” and “If Beale Street Could Talk.” He has lent his voice to “The LEGO Movie” and “The LEGO Ninjago Movie.”

On the small screen he is known for his roles in “Scrubs” and “Easy.” Franco first broke into the comedy scene by directing and starring in original sketches for Funny or Die.
