Jim Gaffigan Gets Desperate in Trailer for Thriller 'American Dreamer'
"Somebody took something from me." Saban Films has debtued an official trailer for a crazy indie thriller titled American Dreamer, from director Derrick Borte (The Joneses, Dark Around the Stars, H8RZ). The film first premiered at the Los Angeles Film Festival last year, and also played at the Virginia Film Festival. Playing off the rideshare society we live in, the film is about a driver who works for a company called HAIL who makes extra cash chauffeuring a low level drug dealer around town. But when he finds himself in a serious financial bind, he decides to kidnap the dealer's kid - and obviously this doesn't go very well. Jim Gaffigan stars, joined by Robbie Jones, Isabel Arizza, Tammy Blanchard, Alejandro Hernandez, Brian K. Landis, and Curtis Lyons. Yeah, this looks as predictable and as mediocre as you might expect.
Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Derrick Borte's American Dreamer, direct from YouTube:
