The first look image of New Girl and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse star Jake Johnson in his new film Self Reliance has been released.

In Self Reliance, which Johnson has also written and directed, he plays Tommy who gets invited to play a game where he can win a million dollars if he can avoid the hunters that are out to kill him.

Fortunately, Tommy finds a loophole in the game: the hunters can only attack when he’s alone, so he will need to team up with others to avoid death and win the game. However, his friends and family don’t believe the game is real.

The film also stars Anna Kendrick and Andy Samberg and will premiere at the SXSW Festival in March.

Last month, Johnson’s comedy series Minx was not only axed from HBO Max a week or two away from the end of production on its second season, but had its first season completely removed from the streaming service.

Filming didn’t halt on the second season however, as distributor Lionsgate looked for a new home. Starz has come in to rescue the show, although details of when they will premiere season 2 and upload season 1 isn’t known at this point.

Back when the cancellation was announced, Johnson said on Instagram: “The crew really killed it this season. @blakemcclure crushed as DP. The set design/wardrobe/everything. It was truly impressive & worth watching… We appreciate all the online support. We love making the show and hope to continue to. It’s a crazy business & that’s partly what’s so additive about it.”

Self Reliance will premiere at the SXSW Festival.
