Adam Brody & Sophie Nélisse in Official Trailer for 'The Kid Detective'
"Someone's following us." "This isn't safe." Sony Pictures has released an official trailer for an indie dark comedy titled The Kid Detective, marking the feature debut of Canadian filmmaker Evan Morgan. A once-celebrated kid detective, now 32, continues to solve the same trivial mysteries between hangovers and bout of self-pity. Until a naïve client brings him his first "adult" case - to figure out who brutally murdered her boyfriend. This just premiered at the Toronto Film Festival, and is out in theaters already later this week. Adam Brody stars as Abe, with Sophie Nélisse, Tzi Ma, Wendy Crewson, and Sarah Sutherland. This reminds me a bit of Derrick Comedy's Mystery Team film from over a decade ago, also about some "kid detectives" who get in over-their-heads. I just hope this is funnier than the trailer? Because it's a bit bland.
Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Evan Morgan's The Kid Detective, from Sony's YouTube:
