Los Angeles, CA – Oct 29, 2019 – How did you spend the night before your high school graduation?

TriCoast Entertainment announces the digital release of mystery-comedy, THE BOONIES, arriving on digital platforms this November, learned Late to the Game exclusively.

From the producers ofthe upcoming Confessional (Marcus Scribner, Paris Berelc) and award-winner writer/director Brad T. Gottfred (The Movie Hero), THE BOONIES is a about a group of former best friends who discover their dead classmate left a buried treasure inside the high school walls.

Inspired by the teenage adventures like The Goonies, Gottfred’s film hearkens back to the ‘80s, breathing nostalgia into an entertaining, coming-of-age story featuring hot Generation Z stars Andi Matichak (Halloween), Calum Worthy (The Act) and Emilio Garcia-Sanchez (The Society) alongside popular YouTube creators Cody Ko, Lauren Elizabeth and Amy-Marie Gaertner.

On the eve of graduation, THE BOONIES follows five disparate seniors – once childhood best friends – who are united by a dead classmate’s cryptic video directing them to embark on a million-dollar treasure hunt inside Boone High School. Through clues, the friends find explosive clues in lockers, enter trap doors through bathroom mirrors, and risk their lives inside under-construction class hallways – but only if the friends can put aside their high school egos and follow three rules:

Rule #1: Stick together.

Rule #2: No dying.

Rule #3: Confess your greatest secret.

Will the teens survive their last Boonie adventure?
