Spike Lee, Da Sweet Blood of Jesus

I Used to Go Here” is shaping up to offer plenty of much-needed laughs for cinema buffs hungry for new material. IndieWire is exclusively premiering the trailer for Kris Rey’s upcoming film, which is set for a release later this summer in theaters and on VOD platforms courtesy of Gravitas Ventures. The cast includes “Community” and “Love” favorite Gillian Jacobs in the lead role opposite the likes of Jemaine Clement, Hannah Marks, Kate Micucci, Jorma Taccone, Josh Wiggins, and Forrest Goodluck.

Jacobs stars as Kate Conklin, a 35-year-old writer who heads back to her alma mater to give a lecture about writing following the lackluster debut of her first novel. The synopsis reads: “With her book tour canceled and her ego deflated, Kate wonders if returning to her old college as a published author might give her the morale boost she sorely needs. Instead, she falls into a comical regression – from misadventures with eccentric twenty-year-olds to feelings of jealousy toward her former professor’s new favorite student.”
