The feature focuses on Pete, played by Staples, who after getting his dreams crushed by a rejection letter, takes off on a road trip with a band of free spirits. He soon finds out that they are in fact a band of bank robbers headed by a modern-day Robin Hood who just so happens to be on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list.
Vince says he didn’t have trouble with A$AP Rocky acting out that ‘slippery slope’ scene in the new movie ‘Dope.
Congrats to Vince! Punk is set for release in the near future.
