The film stars Jon Hamm, Danny Pudi, Christopher Heyerdahl, Allison Riley, and Shawn Macdonald. It is based on the novel “The Room” by Jonas Karlsson and is directed by Joachim Back. Ted Kupper wrote the screenplay.
In this workplace comedy reminiscent of Office Space and “Severance,” misfit Orson finds himself trapped in the absurdities of corporate life. As The Authority’s newest employee, Orson finds it difficult to connect with his enigmatic desk mate, Rakesh (Danny Pudi), as well as with the rest of his colleagues. His alienation deepens when he discovers a room he’s told doesn’t exist – a place that unleashes his true potential, leading to an ascent up the corporate ladder.
Buoyed by his newfound confidence, Orson invites a receptionist into his sanctuary, sparking a climactic clash between the corporate world’s harsh realities and his own wild fantasies.
“Corner Office” is set for release on August 4, 2023.
