Daniel Scheinert, one half of the directing duo behind Swiss Army Man, is back this year with A24‘s The Death of Dick Long, which once again has a dead body at the center of it.
Dick is dead. But how did he die? Scheinert’s film is said to “balance the hilarity and heartache of what happens when dark secrets are dragged kicking and screaming into the light.”
In the film (read our review), written by Billy Chew:
“Dick is dead. Died last night after band practice, and his bandmates, Zeke & Earl, don’t want anybody finding out how. That’s too bad though, ‘cause news travels fast in small town Alabama, and these guys suck at covering their tracks. The authorities haven’t ID’d the body just yet, but Zeke’s wife and his daughter are suspicious already.”
You can check out the trailer below.
Michael Abbott Jr., Virginia Newcomb, Andre Hyland, Sarah Baker, Jess Weixler, Sunita Mani, Roy Wood Jr., Poppi Cunningham and Janelle Cochrane star.
A24 will release The Death of Dick Long in theaters on September 27.
