Some people leave a will when they die. In the new movie Ride The Eagle, Jake Johnson must complete a series of tasks in order to inherit his mother’s cabin (Susan Sarandon). Of course, as movies go, he learns about himself and his mom along the way.
Johnson, known for playing lovable grump Nick Miller on New Girl, co-wrote the screenplay with Trent O’Donnell (New Girl, No Activity). He and Sarandon are joined by The Good Place’s D’Arcy Carden and Oscar winner J.K. Simmons.
The official synopsis is as follows.
When Leif’s (Jake Johnson) estranged mother Honey (Susan Sarandon) dies she leaves him a ‘conditional inheritance’. Before he can move into her picturesque Yosemite cabin, he has to complete her elaborate, and sometimes dubious, to-do list. Leif and Nora, his canine BFF, step into Honey’s wild world as she tries to make amends from beyond the grave in this hilarious and heartfelt comedy.
You can catch Ride The Eagle when it hits theaters and on-demand July 30.
