The offbeat comedy, starring Nick Thune (Knocked Up), takes viewers on a wild and whimsical ride, merging fantasy with reality from the confines of a living room chock-full of cut-up cardboard boxes. Meera Rohit Kumbhani (Donny!), James Urbaniak (Difficult People), Stephanie Allynne (In a World) and Kirsten Vangsness (Criminal Minds) also star. I talked to Nick about the movie and his favorite football team the Seahawks. You can listen below.
Dave Made a Maze will make its theatrical and on demand debut on August 18.
Dave (Thune), an artist who has yet to complete anything significant in his career, builds a fort in his living room out of pure frustration, only to wind up trapped by the fantastical pitfalls, booby traps, and critters of his own creation. Ignoring his warnings, Dave’s girlfriend Annie (Kumbhani) leads a band of oddball explorers on a rescue mission. Once inside, they find themselves trapped in an ever-changing supernatural world, threatened by booby traps and pursued by a bloodthirsty Minotaur.
Dave Made a Maze comes from the minds of first-time director Bill Watterson and his co-writer Steven Sears. John Charles Meyer and John Chuldenko produced; Carlos Cusco and Emerson Machtus (The Little Hours) are the Executive Producers.
