Amber Heard and Shiloh Fernandez to star in Syrup
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
I feel like I read a lot of film synopsis that are just mind numbingly dull, so it’s extremely refreshing when I read one that actually sounds interesting. The upcoming indie film SYRUP is about a grad student named Scat that invents a beverage he calls ‘Fukk Cola’. He takes the idea to a production manager friend of his and the manager actually likes it. Oh, by the way, her name is 6. But things go awry when Scat’s roommate, Sneaky Pete, steals the idea and takes it to corporate on his own and makes millions off of it. That, of course, forces Scat and 6 to plot their revenge.
So how’s that for originality? Yeah, I know it stars Shiloh Fernandez, who stunk up the screen in RED RIDING HOOD, but maybe with a better idea and a more talented director, he can do something with it. Max Barry will be directing from his own novel.
