Premise[edit]

Reef Hawk is an actor who has been sober for five years. Taking a break from acting to build his new home, he takes pride in his progress in life. However, when he receives a call from his crisis lawyer Ira Slitz, who reveals that someone is blackmailing him with a video of questionable content, his life is turned upside-down. Reef then sets out to make amends with those who he has wronged in the past to figure out who the blackmailer is.[1]

Casting[edit]

It was announced in April 2023 that Apple TV+ had acquired the film, to be directed by Jonah Hill, who would also star in the film with Keanu Reeves, who was in negotiations at that point to star alongside Hill.[2] In January 2024, Reeves was confirmed to star in the film, with principal photography scheduled to begin in March 2024 in Los Angeles, and expected to wrap in May.[1] In March, Cameron Diaz was said to be in advanced talks to join the film in an undisclosed starring role.[3] Days later, Diaz was confirmed to have signed on to join the cast, with Matt Bomer also joining in another undisclosed role.[4] This will mark the first time Reeves and Diaz have appeared in a film together since Feeling Minnesota (1996).[5]

Filming[edit]

Principal photography began on March 20, 2024,[6] shortly after the production of Reeves and Aziz Ansari's comedy film Good Fortune.[7] In April, Susan Lucci, David Spade, Laverne Cox, Kaia Gerber, Roy Wood Jr. and Atsuko Okatsuka were added to the cast.[8]

Post-production[edit]

Nick Houy serves as an editor for the film.[9]

Outcome will be released on Apple TV+.[2]
