A Kennesaw actor is starring in a new dark comedy bromance marking the feature film debut of director/writer/producer Sarah Smick.

“Friended to Death” stars James Immekus of Kennesaw as well as Ryan Hansen (“Veronica Mars”) and Zach McGowan (“Black Sails”). The film is coming to Kennesaw for a week run at AMC Barrett Commons beginning May 2. On May 3 at 7 p,m, Immekus will attend the local screening.

“Friended To Death” charts the extremes to which a desperate Facebook junkie will go in order to figure out who his true friends are. Laced with satire, this tongue-in-cheek bromantic comedy tells the story of obnoxious Los Angeles parking enforcement officer Michael Harris (Hansen). After being fired from his dream job and ditched by his best friend (McGowan), Michael begins to question whether anyone would care if he died. So with the help of his pushover former co-worker Emile (Immekus), Michael does what any social media-obsessed loner would do: He fakes his death online to see who will show up at his funeral. In just hours, Michael’s fake death post attracts a promising 22 ‘Likes.’ Giddy and eager to milk the prank, Michael convinces Emile to help him stage a faux memorial service. But as plans start taking shape, Michael’s reality gradually implodes, forcing him to reconsider what it means to be a “friend” in today’s hyper-connected world of social media.
