The film follows bank teller Guy who discovers he’s living inside of a video game as an NPC (Non-Playable Character). In a move reminiscent of The Truman Show and Wreck-It Ralph, Guy breaks the cycle of his programming in the game to stop a bank heist in his open-world shooter title. As a result, he meets heroine Molotov Girl (the protagonist being controlled by Jodie Comer) to assist in a mission that affects the very game he lives in. The film also stars Lil Rel Howery, Joe Keery, and Utkarsh Ambudkar.
Although the film is expected to arrive around December 11 of this year, theaters look on track to shut down once again after the release date of No Time to Die and Dune have shifted its premiere dates to 2021.
In other entertainment news, Clint Eastwood is set to direct and star in the film adaptation of Cry Macho.
