Josh Brener On The New Film “The Rumperbutts,” Working With Brother Marc, Mates Of State, Future Projects, Writing & More

Writer/director Marc Brener’s hilarious new comedy The Rumperbutts is scheduled to hit digital outlets on November 19, 2021 via Global Digital Releasing. Per the premise of the film, a married couple and indie-band duo — who never reached the success that they had always hoped — decides to stop pursuing their dream when a financial opportunity arises for them to perform on a new children’s program called The Rumperbutts. In spite of all the money and newfound success, the two of them are miserable and have spilt up. However, without giving away too much of the film’s storyline, on one magical evening, a mysterious stranger comes into their lives and gives them a second chance.

In the words of writer/director Marc Brener: “It is a challenge to rely on anyone in this world. A big believer that if you say you are going to do something, then do it. At the same time, this story shares what it is like to pursue a creative endeavor and usually not have much money to go with that versus taking a soul sucking job with a regular pay check. At the end of the day, do what you say you are going to do in this world, and if you can find a balance between being creative and getting paid, then you are a success.” The excellent cast of The Rumperbutts includes Blue Bloods star Vanessa Ray, Josh Brener from Silicon Valley, Tony Award nominee Arian Moayed and real-life couple and bandmates Kori Gardner and Jason Hammel; Gardner and Hammel may be better known as the band Mates Of State.
