Night Owls to host World Premiere at 2015 SXSW Film Festival


Rosa Salazar is set to become a rising young star with roles in the upcoming sequels to the successful Divergent and Maze Runner film series. Insurgent and Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials will no doubt become successful hits at the box office and will attract a legion of young fans. Before Rosa landed the roles in these films, Rosa took part in Night Owls, a comedy drama written and directed by Charles Hood. This is a film that is perfect for those who would rather avoid watching a horror film on Friday the 13th, especially when its cast include comedic actors Tony Hale and Adam Pally.

Night Owls is set to have its world premiere on Friday 13th March at the 2015 SXSW Film Festival.

Workaholic Kevin (Adam Pally) goes home with the beautiful train-wreck Madeline (Rosa Salazar) for a drunken one night stand, but he’s horrified to discover she’s actually his boss’ jilted ex-mistress. After she takes a bottle of sleeping pills, Kevin is forced to keep her awake all night. As Madeline and Kevin banter through the night, they begin to fall for each other.

The cast include Adam Pally (The Mindy Project), Rosa Salazar (Insurgent, Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials), Rob Huebel (The League), Tony Hale (Arrested Development) and Peter Krause (Six Feet Under).
