The Sixth Reel, a screwball comedy caper co-written and co-directed by drag legend Charles Busch and acclaimed American director Carl Andress, will premiere this fall.
Synopsis: When the death of a close friend unearths the long-thought lost final reel of a classic undiscovered film, Jimmy (Charles Busch) – a down-on-his-luck movie collector – and his social circle of obsessive collectors each concocts wild, underhanded schemes to cash in on a big sale of the film.
The film stars Charles Busch, Julie Halston, André De Shields, and Patrick Page, with Tim Daly and Margaret Cho.
The Sixth Reel premiered in 2021 at Outfest in Los Angeles, where it was honored with a Special Mention for Outstanding Ensemble.
Wolfe Video will debut the screwball comedy in select US theaters starting September 22, followed by a VOD release soon after.
