Chace Crawford in First Trailer for Young NYC Elites Film 'Nighthawks'
"He doesn't belong here…" FilmRise has unveiled an official trailer for an indie thriller titled Nighthawks, the latest from Tony-winning theater director / filmmaker Grant S. Johnson (Frat Star). Chace Crawford plays a "wide-eyed Midwest transplant" named Stan who agrees to be the wingman to his "calculating and privileged" roommate Chad as they embark upon an exploration of glittering New York City nightlife, whose darkest secrets are held captive by an elite group of millennials known as "Nighthawks". If you think that sounds boring, just wait until you watch the trailer. The cast includes Kevin Zegers, Janet Montgomery, Lola Bessis, Michele Weaver, Blue Kimble, Craig Castaldo, Melanie Blake Roth, Max Sheldon, Juliette Labelle, and Nicole Balsam. This looks way too extravagant and cliche and glitzy for my tastes.
Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Grant S. Johnson's Nighthawks, direct from FilmRise's YouTube:
Wide-eyed Midwest transplant Stan (Chace Crawford) agrees to play wingman to his calculating and privileged roommate Chad (Kevin Zegers) as they embark upon an exploration of glittering New York nightlife, whose darkest secrets are held captive by an elite band of millennials known as Nighthawks. Nighthawks is both written and directed by American theater director / filmmaker Grant S. Johnson, his second feature film after making Frat Star previously. Produced by John Hart, Grant S. Johnson, Peter Pastorelli, and Jeffrey Sharp. This premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival earlier this year. FilmRise is will release Johnson's Nighthawks direct-to-VOD starting on October 3rd, 2019 in the fall. How does it look?
