Crackle has some new spy thriller entertainment coming your way. Sony’s online distribution platform will release its original, feature-length film The Throwaways on its site on December 19, 2014.
The film centers around a character named Drew Reynolds (played by Sam Huntington of Being Human and Superman Returns fame), a hacker who is captured by the CIA and forced to choose either a job with the organization or life in prison. Reynolds joins a “throwaway” group of the CIA’s least-favored agents, including Colonel Christopher Holden (played by James Caan from The Godfather) and combat specialist Dan Fisher (portrayed by Kevin Dillon of Platoon). Together, the three aim to take out a cyber-terrorist bent on destruction.
Written by Michael Ross of Jerry McGuire, The Throwaways co-stars Katie McGrath from Merlin, Christian Hillborg of The Bridge, and Jack Kesy of The Strain. Jeremy Renner (The Hurt Locker, The Avengers) and his colleague Don Handfield (Kill the Messenger) executive produced the film through their production company The Combine along with Timothy Linh Bui.
The Throwaways is just one feature-length film Crackle has recently announced. The online distributor will release Joe Dirt 2 starring David Spade in 2015. It also has plans to produce a film based on the popular video game franchise Dead Rising.
