ComingSoon.net has your exclusive first look at a new clip from Murder of a Cat, the quirky comedy coming to theaters on December 5. Produced by Sam Raimi and directed by Gillian Greene, the Gravitas Ventures releases stars Fran Kranz, Nikki Reed, J.K. Simmons, Blythe Danner and Greg Kinnear.
In the film, Clinton Moisey is an iconoclastic, artisan action-figure designer who still lives in his mom’s basement, and is, by the standards of the world, a full-blown loser. But Clinton doesn’t have time to care about what others think of him; he’s too busy running a yard sale where he promotes his hardboiled detective toy line with his pet cat and best friend, “Mouser.” When Clinton wakes up one morning to find Mouser impaled by a crossbow arrow, he is devastated. Realizing that the local Sheriff is only interested in flirting with his mom, Clinton sets off on his own to find out who killed Mouser and why. As Clinton delves deeper into the case, he encounters a free-spirited weed dealer and part-time hair stylist to the elderly, a squeaky-clean Korean store clerk with a dark side, and a local celebrity on the verge of a nervous breakdown, ultimately uncovering a town-wide conspiracy far greater than he ever imagined.
Murder of a Cat is a modern-day film noir set in the mundane world of the suburbs.
