by Phil Wheat

The legendary Rita Moreno (Singing in the Rain, West Side Story) is the teacher of your nightmares in the dark comedy thriller The Prank, set for a UK release next week! Also starring Connor Kalopsis (Outmatched) and Ramona Young (Never Have I Ever), The Prank is written by Rebecca Flinn-White (Period’s Big Adventure) and Zak White (Creepshow) and directed by Maureen Bharoocha (Pitch Perfect: Bumper in Berlin).

Ben has a stern, mean and cruel physics teacher, Mrs. Wheeler. She has been teaching at the school for decades and has a reputation for being the hardest, coldest, strictest faculty member. She fails Ben’s entire class unless a student who cheated comes forward. But when no one does, Tanner and Ben hatch a plan to ruin her life and frame her for murder on social media.

The Prank will be available on digital platforms June 24th, courtesy of Signature Entertainment. Check out the trailer and poster below:
