Crackle, Sony Pictures Television Networks’ free, ad-supported streaming network, has announced that it has acquired distribution rights in North America to the comedy-horror film, Office Uprising. The feature from Mind the GAP Productions and The Exchange, a production, financing and sales company, will release in Summer 2018.
Office Uprising follows the story of an underachiever working at a major weapons manufacturing firm who finds that his co-workers have been “weaponized” by a new energy drink designed for the military.

The feature stars Brenton Thwaites (Pirates of the Caribbean: Dean Men Tell No Tales), Jane Levy (Don’t Breathe), Karan Soni (Deadpool), Zachary Levi (Tangled) and Alan Ritchson (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, “Blue Mountain State”).
Office Uprising is helmed by Lin Oeding and written by Ian Shorr (Splinter) and Peter Gamble. Giulia Prenna, Sean Lydiard, Jim Steele, and Will Clevinger serve as the film’s producers and Christopher J. Conover, Brenton Thwaites, David Boies, Stephanie Pinola, Brian O’Shea, Nat McCormick and Sean E. DeMott as executive producers.
