‘Role Play’ Trailer: Kaley Cuoco Is A Suburban Mom Keeping A Deadly Secret From David Oyelowo

Married couple engage in role play all of the time. It’s a perfectly natural way to try and spice things up romantically. In the movies, however, it always ends in disaster. ALWAYS. In the upcoming Prime Video action-comedy Role Play, Kaley Cuoco and David Oyelowo find themselves in a Mr. & Mrs. Smith situation when they try to energize their love life.

Cuoco and Oyelowo play a happily married suburban couple who try to ramp up the kink factor with some role play at a nearby hotel. But what ends up happening is the husband learns his wife is secretly an elite assassin for hire, and he ends up tagging along on her dangerous “one last job”, which as we know never turns out to be the case. Who wants to bet money they end up as an assassin team for hire?

The film is directed by Thomas Vincent, who is familiar to Amazon as he’s directed episodes of their Reacher series. Also in the cast are Connie Nielsen and Bill Nighy.

SYNOPSIS: Emma has a wonderful husband and two kids in the suburbs of New Jersey – she also has a secret life as an assassin for hire – a secret that her husband David discovers when the couple decide to spice up their marriage with a little role play.

Role Play hits Prime Video on January 12th 2024.
