New Movie ‘Favor’ Stars Bossier City Native Blayne Weaver
"A friend helps you move. A good friend helps you move a body." That's the basic theme behind a new movie called "Favor," starring Bossier City native Blayne Weaver.
The film centers around Kip Desmond, played by Weaver. Here's a synopsis of what "Favor" is about according to the movie's official website:
"Kip Desmond has gotten everything he's ever wanted: a thriving career, beautiful
wife, and an affluent lifestyle, all of which is put in jeopardy when Abby, the
waitress with whom he's having a casual fling, is accidentally killed in their motel
room. Desperate, he ends up on the doorstep of childhood friend Marvin Croat
and asks him for a massive favor: help get rid of the body.
Marvin, an unemployed and divorced loser, agrees to make the body disappear,
but the reality of actually performing this gruesome act drives Marvin into a state
of deep depression and guilt. He turns to Kip for solace and comfort, since he's
the only other person who knows what's happened, but Kip, wanting to stay
removed from the situation, insists the two keep their distance.
Increasingly angered by what he feels is a callous betrayal, Marvin begins to ask
Kip for favors that soon grow in size and difficulty. When Kip tries to refuse,
Marvin threatens to go to the authorities with information about Abby's death.
Although Marvin's ploy works at first, eventually Kip refuses to give into this
blackmail, forcing Marvin to resort to more violent methods of getting the payback
he feels he deserves. This leads both men to murderous acts neither had ever
suspected themselves capable of."
"Favor" is premiering at various film festivals this month and available starting today On-Demand in over 100 million homes.
Weaver will be live in the studio with KEEL's Robert & Erin at 7:30 Thursday morning, so be sure to tune in.
