The Friendship Game tells the story of a group of teenagers that live in a small town. One day, the teens come across a strange object that puts them in a game that tests all of their loyalties to one another. As the game goes on, however, the situation becomes more dire and the consequences become even more destructive. In addition to List, the cast for the upcoming film includes Brendan Meyer, Kelcey MawemaKaitlyn Santa Juana, and Dylan Schombing.

The new key art released shows both the film’s star as well as the artifact at the center of the narrative front and center.

The title of the film is written in white lettering except for a similar bloodstain going across some of its letters. Underneath the title of the film, the tagline “Win together or die alone” is written.

The Friendship Game is directed by Scooter Corkle (Hollow in the Land) based on a screenplay penned by Damien Ober (The OA).
