Ashton Kutcher and BJ Novak may have appeared on the MTV comedy series "Punk'd" together, but the duo didn't actually prank anyone on the set of their new film "Vengeance."
When asked by Insider at the 2022 Tribeca Film Festival premiere of the new
"We didn't have time. This was like the first thing back from COVID," Kutcher explained. "I was getting ready to drive my car across the country because we couldn't fly anymore. I was gonna drive to go shoot the film and then it got called [off]."
"As soon as they could start filming again, I just showed up," the "Dude, Where's My Car?" actor continued. "It was really weird because I didn't know what the rules were. And so... it wasn't very prank-y."
But even though the duo couldn't recreate their "Punk'd" antics on set together, Kutcher said he hadn't lost his enthusiasm for pranks.
"I always want to prank someone," the actor joked to Insider.
Novak directs, writes, and stars in the dark comedy, which follows jaded New York journalist and wannabe podcaster Ben (Novak) as he travels to rural Texas to attend the funeral of Abilene, a woman he'd been casually hooking up with (her family believes they were in a more serious relationship).
Upon arriving in the small town, Ben meets local music producer Quentin (Kutcher), whose philosophical outlook challenges Ben's notions of the American South. And as he grows closer to Abilene's family, Ben begins to question whether or not her death was truly an accident.
J. Smith-Cameron, Issa Rae, Boyd Holbrook, Dove Cameron, and Isabella Amara also star, in addition to Kutcher and Novak.
