Crackle, Sony‘s ad-supported video streaming platform, has announced its next original feature — a raucous comedy called Party Boat. In addition to SNL and Jerry Maguire actor Jay Mohr, the film also touts some digital star wattage from noted vlogger JC Caylen.
Also appearing in Party Boat are Brett Davern (Crackle’s Chosen), Beau Mirchoff (MTV’s Awkward), Sung Kang (Fast And Furious 6), Demetrius Bridges (The Vampire Diaries), and Katie LeClerc, who most recently headlined Awesomeness’ first original Awestruck series, Confess. In the film, Davern plays an irresponsible party animal named Max who is on a mission to throw a wild birthday party for his best friend and longtime crush (Leclerc), whose boyfriend — unbeknownst to Max — is planning a proposal.
Party Boat will debut exclusively on PlayStation on August 22 before rolling out to Crackle on the 24th. The film was directed by Dylan Kidd and written by husband and wife creative duo Matt Giegerich and Chelsea Rae Giegerich.
Other original films from Crackle — which is available in 21 countries — include: Joe Dirt 2: Beautiful Loser, Dead Rising: Watchtower, and Mad Families, starring Charlie Sheen and Leah Remini. The platform’s original drama series include the Adam Brody-starring StartUp; The Oath, executive produced by Curtis ‘50 Cent’ Jackson; and Snatch, based on the Guy Ritchie film of the same name.
