Avildsen, Cassier, and Antonucci in What Now movie

Sumerian Records founder Ash Avildsen has written and directed a new comedy film titled 'What Now'. Set for release under the Sumerian Films brand, the movie stars Avildsen, booking agent Joseph Cassiere, and former Sworn Enemy guitarist Lorenzo Antonucci. Here's the storyline:

Three best friends explore the world of online swipe dating in Los Angeles and quickly find out that anyone who judges you based on your salary or number of social media followers is someone who has their own soul-searching to do.

The estimated budget for the production is $250,000.

'What Now' features cameos from a slew of Sumerian comrades, including Ice-T, Asking Alexandria, Diamond Dallas Page, and Tosin Abasi of Animals As Leaders. Additionally, the soundtrack features Circa Survive, Crosses, Periphery, Born Of Osiris, Throwdown, Upon A Burning Body, and many other familiar names.

The movie will debut in select theaters on March 19, while launching on cable and Internet VOD on April 3. An extended trailer can be found below.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again; What this world needs is more romantic comedies with wrestlers.

If you've ever hung out with Lorenzo in real life you'd look forward to this movie. I have known him 20 years and the guy has ALWAYS been hilarious and most of the time not on purpose. I'm excited to see how his comedy translates to a scripted movie. #h8ersgonnah8 #fckjamesfranco #larryboozeforpresident

It's like a semi-wealthy metal dude who owns a record label watched Entourage and thought it would be a good idea to make a movie..

..oh .. wait a sec ..

Just goes to show that with the right amount of money, any egocentric douchebag can do anything he wants. Please do not call this garage a "feature" for fcksake.

A more fitting title would have been "c-cky"

2/6/2015 7:39:31 PM
if i was in a sumerian band, i would be fvcking pissed. wasting a quarter mil, presumably multiple times, is a public slap in the face to the whole roster. yeah, they all suck, and they make some money, but they still work hard, and would benefit from a slice of that pie. the 35 sumerian bands bands at, say, 5 members a piece, only amounts to $1400 a person, but that's a nice bonus. and ash could probably do that a couple times a year. somebody kill that greedy fvcking jew f4ggot already

i'm in a sumerian band. cleanest accounting in the biz. bands get treated like true partners. you guys all need to relax. outside investors put up money for the script to make the movie. it has nothing to do with spending band dollars. i also saw the movie and it's pretty damn funny. lambgoatttttttttttt

That's what they call a "storyline?" It sounds like a subtweet
