PROJECT DETAILS
  • RLJ Entertainment distributes in the US.
  • Will have its world premiere at 2017's SXSW film festival.
  • Filmed in Belgrade, Serbia.
  • Directed Joe Lynch was quoted saying: "Oddly enough, Mayhem may be my most personal movie. I read this script while I was working a corporate job in an office space I came to detest, very much like Steven Yeun’s character Derek. I liked the job for the most part and it paid the bills, but that environment can be difficult to traverse, especially when you’re being tasked to be a ‘creative’ in what’s usually a creatively averse environment. Steven’s journey is every much a reflection of my own, the question of, what’s considered success today? Does success equal happiness and satisfaction? And from my perspective, the current corporate culture is a petri dish of passive aggression and non-confrontation — so what happens if you strip that down and let people act out their true states of mind, unleash their inhibitions?. And, frankly, who doesn’t want to see a bunch of white collared legal douchebags tear one another apart? We definitely set out to make a darkly fun movie, a cathartic rollercoaster ride, but there are themes that run deeper for us personally. I think we worked a lot of issues out with this film!"

  • Fans may remember actor Steven Yeun as "Glenn" from AMC's The Walking Dead.
  • Directed by Joe Lynch (Wrong Turn 2: Dead EndKnights of Badassdom).
