Netflix has acquired and is set to release the already-completed movie Incoming, a new R-rated teen comedy starring Bobby Cannavale and Kaitlin Olson from directors Dave Chernin and John Chernin.

First announced in July 2022, the movie is described as a high school comedy about four freshmen who have to attend their first-ever party and navigate all that comes with it. Think American Pie meets Good Boys.

News of the jump to Netflix became official in November 2023, first reported by captured by the CARA Ratings Bulletin for the movie that attached the previously independent movie to Netflix. The film has an R rating for drug use, drinking, sexual content, pervasive language, and some violence.

Filming of the movie took place between July and October 2022 in Los Angeles, California.

When will Incoming be released on Netflix?

As part of the Netflix Summer 2024 slate reveal, Netflix confirmed that the Incoming will land on Netflix globally on August 23rd, 2024.

Who is behind Incoming?

Brothers Dave and John Chernin are behind the movie, serving as the writers and directors on the feature. The duo are behind the Fox series The Mick, which Netflix in the US licensed over the summer.

The director’s father, Peter Chernin, notably works with Netflix extensively under an overall deal and has an entire slate of TV and movie projects in development at the streamer.

Also reportedly appearing in the movie include:

  • Gattlin Griffith (Labor Day) as Shaved Head

The pick-up follows another successful comedy acquisition for Netflix in recent months in the form of the R-rated Old Dads from director Bill Burr and Miramax. Of course, that movie also featured Bobby Cannavale, who also recently featured in Ryan Murphy’s hit series, The Watcher.

No release date has been set for the movie yet, but we suspect, given it’s ready to go, it will likely appear on our screens in the coming months.
