A few weeks ago, Netflix launched the trailer of Do Revenge, an upcoming dark comedy film arriving soon on the streaming platform. The film revolves around the story of two teenagers who come together to go after each other’s bullies.
Do Revenge is inspired by Alfred Hitchcock‘s 1951 psychological thriller Strangers on a Train. Fans are eagerly awaiting the release of the film, ever since the trailer dropped. But when does the film premieres? Read on to find out.
Release Date of Do Revenge
The revenge drama is scheduled to premiere on Netflix on Friday, September 16. Do Revenge is directed by Jennifer Kaytin Robinson, who previously directed the 2019 film Someone Great and co-wrote Thor: Love and Thunder.
Robinson has also written the film, along with Celeste Ballard. Do Revenge has been produced by Anthony Bregman, Peter Cron and Jennifer Kaytin Robinson, with Joshua Bachove serving as Executive Producer.
The project was first announced in October 2020, with the working title Strangers. The lead cast was announced in November 2020, with filming beginning in early 2021 and concluding by August 2021.
Do Revenge Plotline
The film is based on the lives of two high school students, Drea and Eleanor. Drea is a famous girl at school whose life turns upside down when a topless video of hers, originally intended for her boyfriend Max, gets leaked to the entire school.
Meanwhile, Eleanor is a new student who encounters her old bully Carissa at this new school. Rumours also start floating around that Eleanor held Carissa down and tried to kiss her, resulting in the former becoming an outcast.
Drea and Eleanor then form a friendship and decide to take down each other’s bullies. The official synopsis of the film reads, “After a clandestine meet-cute, Drea (Alpha, fallen it girl) and Eleanor (beta, new alt girl) team up to go after each other’s tormentors. Do Revenge is a subverted Hitchcock-ian dark comedy featuring the scariest protagonists of all: teenage girls.”
Talking about the story, director Robinson said, “I think there are different points where everyone’s the villain and everyone’s the hero in this story. And that is so much of what growing up is. I wanted to make something that paints with all the colors of adolescence.”
