When he’s not spending his time fighting the forces of Hydra on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Clark Gregg is busy writing and directing indie features with some of the coolest actors in the business, and his latest outing, Trust Me, looks like some of his best work on that front yet.
We had a chance to get a look at a clip of this film when Gregg participated in a recent Nerdist Writers Panel, and we can say for certain that 1) this movie brings the goods on the comedy front and 2) Sam Rockwell does a really good slimy douche opposite Gregg.
For those not familiar with the film, Trust Me follows, according to the official synopsis, “Howard Holloway, a down-on-his luck agent for child actors and truly one the last good guys left in Hollywood. After discovering a 13-year-old acting prodigy (newcomer Saxon Sharbino), he is poised to close the deal of a lifetime which would catapult his tween client and, at long last, himself, into the big time. With the support of his gorgeous new neighbor (Amanda Peet), he must wrangle the actress’ volatile, overprotective father (Paul Sparks), dodge a scheming producer (Felicity Huffman), and outwit his uber-slick nemesis (Sam Rockwell).”
Trust Me premiers on VOD May 6th and in limited release on June 6th.
