The Shout! Studios thriller Dead Reckoning starring actor KJ Apa is scheduled to hit digital and on-demand on November 13. Apa is best known for working on the hit TV show Riverdale from the CW that is currently in production for its fifth season. Recently, the trailer dropped for the film Songbird that is expected to be released in 2021 that he is also starring in with Sofia Carson.
Directed by Andrzej Bartkowiak (Romeo Must Die, Doom) Dead Reckoning was written by Kristin Alexandre and Alfred Wayne Carter. The film takes place on the island of Nantucket and tells Tillie’s tale (India Eisley), whose summer romance with Niko (Apa) occurs on the verge of her parents’ abrupt and unexplained death in a plane crash.
Scott Adkins (Doctor Strange), James Remar (Dexter, Black Lightning), Ellie Cornell (Halloween 4: Return of Michael Myers), Devon Diep (The Heat, Honest Thief), and Sydney Park (Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists) also star in the film.
“Dead Reckoning had a lengthy journey to the screen,” said Alexandre. “We now know how hard it is to shepherd an indie feature from concept to distribution. Our focus on future projects is entirely on characters that uplift the human (or innocent animal) condition and are worthy of such time-consuming projects,” said Carter.
