WATCH: Hannibal Buress, Rashida Jones In New Line Cinema’s ‘Tag’!

Comedy News, Trailers/Reviews

Coming off the comedy Game Night, which just crossed the $100 million mark this past weekend, New Line Cinema is going to keep the adult games going with the first trailer for TAG.

Starring Ed Helms, Jake Johnson, Annabelle Wallis, Rashida Jones, Isla Fisher, Leslie Bibb, Hannibal Buress with Jon Hamm and Jeremy Renner, the comedy will open on June 15.

It’s based on the true story (really?!?) of a group of adults who have been keeping their childhood game of tag going into adulthood, the film is directed by Jeff Tomsic, making his feature film debut after mainly directing television and a bunch of shorts, including one called I’m Having a Difficult Time Killing My Parents.

The screenplay was written by Rob McKittrick (Waiting…) and Mark Steilen,  based on Russell Adams’ Wall Street Journal article “It Takes Planning, Caution to Avoid Being It.”

Todd Garner and Steilen produced the film with Hans Ritter, Richard Brener, Walter Hamada and Dave Neustadter exec. producing.

The official synopsis is:

One month every year, five highly competitive friends hit the ground running in a no-holds-barred game of tag they’ve been playing since the first grade—risking their necks, their jobs and their relationships to take each other down with the battle cry “You’re It!”   This year, the game coincides with the wedding of their only undefeated player, which should finally make him an easy target. But he knows they’re coming…and he’s ready.  Based on a true story, “Tag” shows how far some guys will go to be the last man standing.
