See a First Look at Clark Gregg’s ‘Choke’ Follow-Up ‘Trust Me’
I love Clark Gregg. Not entirely sure just why, but I truly always have. So I am certainly pleased that not only will we get to see him in Joss Whedon’s highly-anticipated stripped down adaptation of Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing, but this sprinug also marks the premiere of his sophomore directorial effort, Trust Me. Penned by Gregg as well, the film is his follow-up to the Sam Rockwell-helmed Chuck Palahnick Choke adaptation—and this time, will hopefully have a more favorable turnout. However, this too stars Gregg alongside Rockwell, as well as the always brilliant William H. Macy and Amanda Peet, whom we haven’t seen enough of recently.
Premiering at the Tribeca Film Festival next month, Trust Me will be featured in the Narrative section, with the official synopsis of the film reading:
Trust Me follows flailing Hollywood agent Howard, who seemingly strikes gold after signing the next big child star. What results is an unexpected ride through the nasty inner workings of Hollywood, as Howard desperately tries to make it in an industry that has no interest in recognizing his bumbling but ultimately genuine nature.
