Cast & Crew From “Iké Boys” On Oklahoma, Japan, Future Projects & Premiering At Fantastic Fest

In Iké Boys, best friends Shawn Gunderson and Vikram “Vik” Kapoor escape from the drudgery of high school life in Oklahoma through their obsession with all things Japanese. When a mysterious anime film transforms them into its superhuman characters, they at first think that their wildest fantasies have come true. But when ancient monsters threaten to unleash the apocalypse on New Year’s Eve of 1999, Shawn and Vik must look to each other to become the heroes they were always meant to be. Joining their adventure is Miki, a Japanese exchange student whose determination to go on a Native American vision quest puts her on a collision course with both Shawn and Vik and their foes… and whose destiny may determine the fate of the world. An interesting mesh of genres, of course.

On September 24, 2021, I had the pleasure of speaking with Iké Boys co-writer/director Eric McEver and stars Quinn Lord, Ronak Gandhi and Christina Higa saout their inventive new film, future projects, Oklahoma, Japan and plenty more. The film — which also stars Billy Zane, Yumiko Shaku and Ben Browder — will make its world premiere at this year’s Fantastic Fest on Sunday, September 26, 2021.
