Adam Sherman (Hapiness Runs, producer of Wristcutters: A Love Story) returns behind the camera for his second film, and Apple have debuted the first trailer ahead of its July release in the US.
Though it won’t be topping the box office (going up against The Amazing Spider-Man), it looks promising and will hopefully find its audience.
“With too much money and time on his hands, Zach (Lukas Haas) looks like he’s living the dream. There’s a steady stream of beautiful women and the party never ends. He meets a girl he calls “Crazy Eyes” (Madeline Zima), and she’s unlike anyone he’s ever met before. She’s the one woman Zach can’t have, so naturally he wants her. While Zach’s hard-partying lifestyle threatens to go off the rails, family concerns begin to play a major role in Zach’s life. Will the quest for love and the responsibilities of family life help this poor little rich boy become a man?”
Madeline Zima (Californication, Heroes) co-stars alongside Jake Busey (Good Vibes) and Tania Raymonde (Lost), with Sherman directing from a script he co-wrote with newcomers Dave Reeves and Rachel Hardisty.
Haas and Zima are both brilliant in what I’ve seen of them to date, and I’m looking forward to seeing them opposite each other here.
Crazy Eyes will be released in the US on 6th July, after debuting at SXSW earlier this year. Here in the UK, we’ll probably have to wait for the DVD/Blu-Ray (or the American import of ~), but it looks like it could be worth the wait. Here’s the trailer to whet your appetites. And to watch it in HD, you can head over to Apple here.
