‘Dangerous Lies’ Trailer: Camila Mendes Inherits A Deadly Web Of Lies And Murder

Has an inheritance ever been given in a movie without some strings attached? Usually deadly ones? In the upcoming Netflix thriller Dangerous Lies, Riverdale‘s Camila Mendes is given a fortune, only to learn it could put her and the people she loves in harm’s way.

Dangerous Lies is directed by Michael Scott, and stars Mendes, Jessie T. Usher (The Boys), Jamie Chung (Sin City: A Dame to Kill For), Cam Gigandet (Twilight), Sasha Alexander (Rizzolli & Isles), and Elliott Gould (Ocean’s 8).

SYNOPSIS: After losing her waitressing job, Katie Franklin (Camila Mendes) takes a job as a caretaker to a wealthy elderly man in his sprawling, empty Chicago estate.

If she’s going to survive, Katie will have to question everyone’s motives — even the people she loves.
