Los Angeles, CA (January 29, 2019) — Orion Pictures has set October 25, 2019 for the release of their hidden-camera prank comedy Bad Trip, from producer Jeff Tremaine (Jackass, Bad Grandpa), starring Eric Andre (Adult Swim’s The Eric Andre Show) and Lil Rel Howery (Get Out, Bird Box, Uncle Drew). This marks the first hidden-camera narrative film released in theaters since BAD GRANDPA. The announcement was made today by John Hegeman, President of Orion Pictures.
Bad Trip follows two best friends on a cross-country road trip full of hilarious, inventive pranks, pulling its real-life audience into the mayhem. The film is directed by Kitao Sakurai (Adult Swim’s The Eric Andre Show) and produced by Andre, David Bernad (The Mule, NBC’s Superstore), Ruben Fleischer (Venom, Zombieland) and Tremaine.
“Eric and Rel’s hilarious performances combined with spectacular, groundbreaking pranks will make Bad Trip the defining prank movie for a new generation. We’re incredibly proud to debut the next in line to Borat and Bad Grandpa,” said Bernad, Tremaine and Fleischer in a joint statement.
Next on the Orion Pictures slate is Nicholas McCarthy’s supernatural horror thriller The Prodigy starring Golden Globe and Emmy nominee Taylor Schilling, Jackson Robert Scott, and Colm Feore, opening in theaters on February 8, 2019; and the much-anticipated contemporary reimagining of the iconic horror classic Child’s Play starring Aubrey Plaza, Brian Tyree Henry and Gabriel Bateman on June 21, 2019.
