Secret Headquarters, Owen Wilson’s upcoming superhero flick, will make an exclusive appearance on Paramount+. It will be available in the US, Canada, and select international territories. An August date is slated, but a specific date will be announced at another time.
The story follows a group of young children who discover the base of a superhero. During this discovery, a group of villains attacks, leading the children to defend the headquarters from evil.
Inside the Headquarters
Along with Owen Wilson, the film will star Michael Peña, Walker Scobell (The Adam Project), Jessie Mueller (The Post), Jesse Williams (Grey’s Anatomy), Momona Tamada (The Baby-Sitters Club), David Lengel (WandaVision), and Keith L. Williams (Good Boys).
Directing partners Ariel Schulman and Henry Joost will direct the film. They have worked together on Paranormal Activity 3, Nerve, and most recently, the Netflix film Project Power, which starred Jamie Foxx and Joseph Gordon-Levitt. The directors are writing the film with co-writers Christopher L. Yost (Thor: Ragnarok) and Josh Koenigsberg (Orange Is the New Black).
Paramount Pictures and Jerry Bruckheimer Films are collaborating on the film. Jerry Bruckheimer and Chad Oman are producing. D. Scott Lumpkin and Orlee-Rose Strauss will executive produce.
Paramount+ in the Future
Paramount+, like other streaming services that have recently popped up, is slowly growing its original content. To compete with the likes of Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, and others, the service has had major success with its various Star Trek shows. Along with that, it plans to aim for more family-friendly shows and movies, like what will be seen with Secret Headquarters.
“We have seen tremendous success with our high-quality kids and family content and are excited to add this special superhero movie to our growing slate of Paramount+ original films,” Tanya Giles, chief programming officer for Paramount Streaming, said in a statement. “Secret Headquarters is the perfect action-packed summer film for the whole family, making it a perfect fit for Paramount+ and our mountain of entertainment geared toward the whole household.”
