A first official look at Run This Town, the upcoming drama movie written and directed by Ricky Tollman and starring Ben Platt, Nina Dobrev, Mena Massoud, Damian Lewis, Jennifer Ehle, and Scott Speedman:
“After graduation, Bram gets his dream job at a local newspaper. In his mind he’s the next Woodward (but he’s probably more of a Bernstein). A year in, he realizes that maybe the paper business is no longer what he’d seen in the movies. Instead of investigative journalism, he is writing easily consumable Top 10 Lists – Best Hot Dogs in the City! Ten Ways to Tell You Grew Up in the 90s! After the paper is hit with another round of layoffs, Bram stumbles upon a potentially explosive story involving the city’s controversial mayor (Damian Lewis). But he needs to beat the mayor’s smooth talking aide, Kamal (Nina Dobrev), to the punch. This could be Bram’s big break — if he had any idea how to be a real journalist.”
Do you root for the journalist or for the corrupt mayor? Why?
The film has yet to get an official release date.
