Featuring one of Hollywood’s hottest, but underutilized actresses, Amber Heard alongside Shiloh Fernandez, Syrup is based on the 1999 Max Barry’s comic novel of the same name.
A satirical comedy of marketing and consumerism is co-written and directed by Aram Rappaport (Innocent).
The story follows Scat (Fernandez) who discovers the idea for a new soda beverage named Fukk. He pitches it to ‘6’ (Heard), the production manager at Coke, who agrees that it has massive potential to make them rich. But Scat’s roommate Sneaky Pete (Kellan Lutz) sees this opportunity to climb the corporate ladder, and steals the idea.
While Brad Pitt, Winona Ryder, Tom Cruise and Gwyneth Paltrow all make appearances in the book, something tells us this indie didn’t manage to get them.
The film also stars Brittany Snow.
