Fran Kranz Tries to Solve the 'Murder of a Cat' in Indie Comedy Trailer
Some independent movies are worth seeking out. Others remain obscure and hidden for a reason, and that seems to be why we haven't heard anything about Murder of a Cat, an indie comedy starring Cabin in the Woods scene stealer Fran Kranz along with an interesting mix of supporting players. The film follows a harmless oddball who is thoroughly upset that someone has just murdered his best friend, a cat named Mouser. J.K. Simmons is the investigating officer, and he soon learns that the cat was seemingly leading a double life. Yeah, it's about as stupid as it sounds. Pretty much everyone in this movie is better than this.
Here's the trailer for Gillian Greene's Murder of a Cat, originally from Apple:
Murder of a Cat marks the feature directorial debut of Gillian Greene, working from a script by Robert Snow & Christian Magalhaes (both of the series"New Girl"). Produced by Sam Raimi, an offbeat detective story unfolds after a disgruntled mama's boy and his weed dealing dame tragically have to solve the mystery of who killed their favorite feline. Fran Kranz (Cabin in the Woods) leads the film with Nikki Reed, J. K. Simmons, Blythe Danner and Greg Kinnear rounding out the supporting cast. Gravitas Ventures releases the film simultaneously on iTunes and in limited theaters this winter on December 5th. Well?
