Miles J. Harvey and Damon Wayans Jr are set to star in the comedy Supercool. The comedy which Vertical Entertainment just acquired the North American rights for also stars Jake Short, Madison Davenport, Iliza Shlesinger, Odessa A’zion, Peter Moses, and Madison Bailey.
Supercool centers on Neil Tobbler (Short), who has gone through most of his life feeling invisible and fantasizing about his long-time crush, Summer (Davenport). When Neil and his best friend Gilbert (Harvey) find out that Summer is throwing a birthday party, Gilbert pressures Neil to ask her for an invitation. The plan fails, and Neil embarrasses himself in front of the girl of his dreams.
Desperate and humiliated, Neil wishes upon the universe to be someone else—a supercool version of himself—the next day waking up and realizing that the universe has granted him his wish. Armed with new confidence, Neil gets an invitation to Summer’s party and asks his playboy neighbor Jimmy (Wayans) to help him attract Summer’s attention. As the night begins, things quickly spin out of control. Neil and Gilbert are unexpectedly swept into a series of car chases, robberies and wild parties, with the epic outing testing the boys’ friendship, and forcing Neil to learn a couple life lessons.
