In Runaways, a group of kids discovers their parents are actually supervillains. Netflix’s new film The Sleepover is very similar, except the parental are really world-class thieves, and they’re being forced into one last job.
The Sleepover is basically two movies in one. You have the kids who discover the truth about who their parents, played by Malin Akerman and Ken Marino, really are. The other storyline involves the adults as they try to pull off one final job. Joe Manganiello plays an ex of Akerman’s character, providing a dose of romantic tension.
The cast includes Sadie Stanley, Maxwell Simkins, Cree Cicchino, Lucas Jaye, Karla Souza, Enuka Okuma, and Erik Griffin. Trish Sie is behind the camera, and she’s probably best known for directing Pitch Perfect 3 and Step Up: All In.
Netflix debuts The Sleepover on August 21st.
SYNOPSIS: In this family adventure-comedy, Clancy (Sadie Stanley) and her kid brother Kevin (Maxwell Simkins) discover that their seemingly normal stay-at-home mom Margot (Malin Åkerman) is actually a former high-end thief in the witness protection program. When both their mom and dad (Ken Marino) are kidnapped and forced to pull one last job with an ex-flame of Margot’s (Joe Manganiello), the siblings must team up to rescue their parents over the course of one action-packed night that they’ll never forget.
