- QUOTE FROM JUSTIN NAPPI: “The pairing of Zoey and Glen’s undeniable spark with Katie’s razor sharp dialogue was such an important factor in the success of Set It Up and we cannot wait to build on that even more with Most Dangerous Game. While it was clear that audiences were clamoring for a sequel, we are excited by the thought of creating a new, distinct film that explores different romantic comedy tropes while still being anchored in everything that we loved about the first movie.”
- Most Dangerous Game joins Set it Up in the catalogue of Treehouse Pictures films that includes Sand Castle, directed by Fernando Coimbra and starring Nicholas Hoult and Henry Cavill; That Awkward Moment, written and directed by Thomas Gormican and starring Zac Efron, Imogen Poots, Miles Teller and Michael B. Jordan; All is Lost, starring Robert Redford and directed by J.C. Chandor; and Arbitrage, directed by Nicholas Jarecki and featuring Richard Gere in his Golden Globe-nominated role as Robert Miller.
