Watch: FAT KID RULES THE WORLD Red Band Trailer

Based on K.L. Going’s novel of the same name, Matthew Lillard is making his directorial debut with Fat Kid Rules the World.  It stars Jacob Wysocki, who starred in the film Terri alongside John C. Reilly. From the trailer, this movie has potential to be a hit in the indie community and could potentially be a big break for Wysocki’s acting career.  The film made its debut this past Friday at SXSW, but is still in post production.  You can watch this red band trailer below.

Fat Kid Rules the World follows Troy (Wysocki), who is seventeen, overweight and highly unstable.  Just as he is about to end it all and jump in front of a bus, he is saved by Marcus, an outgoing musician.   The two form an unlikely friendship when Marcus decides that Troy will play drums in his band, even though Troy has never played drums in his life.  Throughout the trailer, Troy’s mind and eyes are opened up to a world of music, popularity and girls as he works his way into Punk rock fame.  Fat Kid Rules the World marks Lillard’s first feature directoral movie and was written by Michael M.B. Glavin and Peter Speakman.
