Writer-director-producer Kerry Mondragon‘s timely pandemic thriller Tyger Tyger is set to spread this February, Variety reports.
Starring Dylan Sprouse (“The Suite Life on Deck”, Dismissed) the film follows a frustrated woman named Blake (Sam Quartin), who robs a pharmacy for life-saving medication while awaiting her test results during a pandemic. She ditches her loser boyfriend (Max Madsen) and makes a deal with a drug addict named Luke (Sprouse) to help distribute the stolen meds to those who need them.
Mondragon produced the movie under his Uninflected Pictures banner, alongside producer Salvatore Sclafani. Mondragon also served as an executive producer with Mary Rose Costello, Casey Mondragon, Shane Jerominski, Phil Batlin, Akshay D’souza. Co-producers include Jack Nielsen, Kaly Ngo, and Joe D’augustine.
Tyger Tyger’ is a personal and magical story about love and drug addiction in the midst of a pandemic,” Mondragon said. “Though we shot this story before the events of 2020, we know both the timeliness and universal themes in the movie will connect with audiences across the world. We’re thrilled to be working with Gravitas, a company that recognizes the urgency of delivering a film that speaks to young people facing today’s daunting challenges.”
Tyger Tyger’ is a unique vision that is as compelling as it is timely. Gravitas is thrilled to be bringing the film to audiences everywhere,” Brett Rogalsky, manager of acquisitions at Gravitas Ventures, said in a statement.
Tyger Tyger is set to be released in select theaters, drive-ins, and on digital platforms, on February 26, 2021, by Gravitas Ventures.
