Here's the trailer for "Coin Heist," an upcoming teen-centric caper film from 24-year-old cult filmmaker Emily Hagins, who is perhaps best known for writing and directing 2006's ultra-low-budget zombie horror movie "Pathogen" at the tender age of 12 (which was documented in the making-of documentary "Zombie Girl: The Movie"). She also previously wrote and directed 2013's Halloween teen comedy "Grow Up, Tony Phillips."
Based on the book of the same name by Elisa Ludwig, "Coin Heist" follows a group of high school students as they plan to save their school's funding by breaking in the U.S. Mint to print out 10 million dollars worth of rare coins.
Starring Alex Saxon (TV's Finding Carter), Alexis G. Zall (Ouija: Origin of Evil), Sasha Pieterse (TV's Pretty Little Liars) and Jay Walker (upcoming Sleight), the film is slated to premiere January 6 on Netflix.
When a crisis threatens to destroy their high school, four teens hatch a daring plan to raise $10 million. Step one? Breaking into the U.S. Mint.
