CBS Films -- Please Release 'Get A Job' Starring Miles Teller, Anna Kendrick & Bryan Cranston
In 2009, CBS Films purchased a hilarious coming of age script about a group of college students forced to lower their expectations for life after college because of an ongoing recession. Three years later in 2012 the script was handed to director Dylan Kidd, and slowly but surely a cast was formed. Miles Teller, Anna Kendrick, and Bryan Cranston were the first few names reported, and later confirmed, to star in the film.
That same year the film started shooting. The entire cast shared behind-the-scene shots almost daily, and the hype was severe. Notable entertainment journalist such as Ben Lyons from E! did set visits, and fans grew really excited about the comedy. When production ended, suddenly the film was dead in the water.
The release date for “Get A Job” changed repeatedly over the course of two years on IMDb, but we knew that didn’t mean much since the site can be updated as frequently as Wikipedia by anyone and everyone. Now, in July 2015, there has not been a single update. No promotional images, no teaser clips or trailers, no website, social media… nothing. Zip. The film is dead, presumably collecting dust somewhere inside your studio offices. Why?
It’s possible that you have a brilliant little indie hit on your hands. Miles Teller, Anna Kendrick, and Bryan Cranston are household names these days. They all have so much hype around them, and they also have an incredible social media following you could sell this film to. The three of them have a combined total of nearly 7,000,000 followers. If you could convince half of those people to watch the film on VOD or iTunes, you would have a small success on your hands. Isn’t a small success better than no success at all? And, if it’s money that CBS Films is worried about, wouldn’t they want to make SOMETHING rather than NOTHING?
This movie deserves to see the light of day. So many people worked on it, so many people were excited about it, and now it’s nowhere to be found.
CBS Films, this is our plea as fans of the actors, movie buffs, entertainment lovers, and more. Please release “Get A Job” to the masses. We know that editing a film properly and promoting it isn’t easy or cheap, but this is to show you that people WILL watch “Get A Job.” They want to see it, they want to spend money it, and all you have to do is take the risk.
P.S. To help with promotional costs, I will take on social media for the film free of charge. Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Tumblr, Vine -- you name it, I got it covered.
