Update – The film has been retitled “Searching”.
A first official look at Search, the upcoming drama movie directed by Aneesh Chaganty based on a script by Sev Ohanian and starring John Cho, Debra Messing, Joseph Lee, Michelle La, and Sara Sohn:
“After a five-minute sequence of the Kim family’s online activity that beautifully relays a decade of their shared lives, Search drops us into the current online existence of family patriarch David (John Cho) and daughter Margot (Michelle La), a high school freshman. Parenting mainly through iMessages and quick FaceTime chats, David is initially more annoyed than concerned when a series of his texts go unreturned, but he soon realizes Margot has gone missing. While a helpful detective (Debra Messing) searches for Margot out in the real world, David grasps at rediscovering his daughter in an unfamiliar online landscape as he searches through the traces she left behind on her laptop.”
So basically it’s a thriller that unfolds entirely on computer screens?
The film has yet to get an official release date.
