Official Selection of Fantastic Fest 2019, The Wave is a psychedelic sci-fi adventure comedy in a directorial debut by Gille Klabin. The film is available on Blu-Ray and VOD as of January 17.
Justin Long and Donald Faison lead the unique modern-day parable that follows Frank (Long), an opportunistic insurance lawyer. He thinks he’s in for the time of his life when he goes out on the town to celebrate an upcoming promotion with his co-worker, Jeff (Faison). But their night takes a turn for the bizarre when Frank is dosed with a hallucinogen that completely alters his perception of the world, taking him on a psychedelic quest through board meetings, nightclubs, shootouts, and alternate dimensions. As Frank ping-pongs between reality and fantasy, he finds himself on a mission to find a missing girl, himself… and his wallet.
Long, known for Drag Me To Hell, Live Free or Die Hard, and Accepted also has comedy credits through frequently appearing in films by Kevin Smith and Judd Apatow. He has also starred alongside Drew Barrymore, Christina Ricci, Liam Neeson, and Ginnifer Goodwin. Currently, Long hosts a podcast, Life Is Short with Justin Long, where he talks to celebrity guests about what they believe the meaning of life to be. Faison is most well known for his roles in the cult classic movie Clueless and television show Scrubs.
The Wave is written and produced by Carl W. Lucas. The film was produced by Robert Dehn and Monte Young, and produced for EchoWolf for Epic Pictures by Lucas and Joshua Bunting.
