Most found-footage films are horror flicks for the simple reason that if the footage was found, there generally wasn’t a filmmaker alive to go along with it. PROJECT X takes the style of those flicks and injects it int the most unlikeliest of genres- a teen sex comedy.
Directed by Nima Nourizadeh and produced by Todd Brown (THE HANGOVER), PROJECT X tells the story of a house party that gets out of hand. The film stars a lot of twenty-somethings playing impossibly good-looking teenagers- Miles Teller, Oliver Cooper, Jonathan Daniel Brown, Kirby Bliss Blanton, Dax Flame, Nichole O’Connor, Thomas Mann, Alexis Knapp and Jillian Reynolds.
Expect the film to hit theaters in March. Seeing that everyone has a cell phone that can shoot hd video now and that people have the need to document every second of their lives, the film could certainly make some interesting social statements. Not sure it’s going to go that far, though… check the recently released trailer for an idea of what to expect.
