Becky is set to be released digitally and here's everything we know about the Lulu Wilson and Kevin James movie.
Have you seen Home Alone? Then Becky is a much more mature and intense version of it. Despite the cast list being dominated by comedians, the film is no joke and listed as a thriller. It may be a bit difficult to take The King of Queens star Kevin James seriously in this role but based on the trailer he seems to fit the part perfectly. In this article, we break down all that we know about the film and what you can expect of it. Let's get right into it.
The film was directed by Jonathan Milott and Cary Murnion and follows a rebellious young girl named Becky who is brought to a weekend getaway at a lake house by her father in an attempt to reconnect. But things turn sour when a group of convicts takes over their lakehouse.
Lulu Wilson tops the cast sheet as Becky. If you think she looks familiar, your mind isn't playing tricks on you. She is Hollywood's resident scared little girl with roles in horror films like Ouija: Origin of Evil (2016), Annabelle: Creation (2017), and Netflix's The Haunting of Hill House. But in this film she's throwing away her scared little girl persona and becomes full-on Rambo!
Comedian Kevin James from Paul Blart: Mall Cop, The Kings of Queens is also in the cast as Dominick as well as fellow comedian Joel McHale from Community Jeff.
Other members of the cast include Amanda Brugel as Kayla, Robert Maillet as Apex, and Ryan McDonald as Cole.
“Kevin James is known for his amazing collection of standup and comedic roles from films such as Paul Blart: Mall Cop and his TV series The King of Queens,” said Quiver co-president Berry Meyerowitz. “In Becky, Kevin delivers a chilling performance in his first villainous role, especially playing against rising star Lulu Wilson in an epic head-to-head battle. We are thrilled to bring Becky to audiences so they can see Kevin in a whole new light.”
Becky is now slated to be released digitally and on-demand on June 5, 2020.
The film was initially set to premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival in April 2020 but due to the COVID-19 pandemic it was postponed indefinitely. Later, Quiver Distribution acquired distribution rights to the film and will be responsible for bringing it to our homes.
