Songbird is produced by STX Entertainment, which is responsible for other hit movies like the 2019 blockbuster Hustlers and the 2017 film Molly’s Game. Other big names like Demi Moore and The Office‘s Craig Robinson also star in the movie.

Apa posted the intense trailer on his Instagram, writing, “So many incredible things about this movie – one being it was the first movie back to shoot in Los Angeles during quarantine. Very much in an unknown territory and paving the way for production safety protocols. It was strange at times – especially while shooting a movie about the pandemic. Can’t wait for you guys to see!”
