New images of Rupert Friend in upcoming 'Renee' film

The upcoming indie film, Renee starring Kat Dennings (in the title role), Chad Michael Murray and Rupert Friend (as producer David McKenna) just launched its official site yesterday (Wednesday). The website looks great with lots of images (including on set and behind the scenes photos featuring RF in a few of them, which you can see below...) and cool contents to get you interested in the film.

"Renee" The Movie, was filmed entirely on location in Orlando, Florida. The indie drama is based on the true story of Renee Yohe, whose battle with drugs, depression, addiction and cutting led to the creation of the charity group To Write Love On Her Arms.
The movie is about a troubled young woman whose issues with self-esteem, substance abuse and self-injury (“cutting”) will star the formidable Kat Dennings, with Chad Michael Murray and Rupert Friend (“The Young Victoria”) also int the cast.
The film is slated for a 2012 release, but no theatrical release date has been announced yet.

No trailer yet either, but in the meantime, check out and watch the Behind The Scenes: The Music in the Movie "Renee" (which includes Rupert in one of the cast and crew interviews where he appeared a couple times at around 3:37 and 5:03) as well as on set, behind the scenes, and a still of Rupert as David McKenna. Plus the film's synopsis and more below! ...

Here's a press release (sent to me via email from Ashley Slone, Press & Promotions at Bonded Entertainment. Thanks!)

Upcoming Rupert Friend Film, "Renee," Launches New Site Using Emerging “3D-Illusion” Web Design Trend
ORLANDO, FL (February 16, 2012) - The upcoming independent film "Renee," starring Kat Dennings (2 Broke Girl$, Thor), Rupert Friend (Pride & Prejudice), Chad Michael Murray (One Tree Hill) and Corbin Bleu (High School Musical), launched its new Web site today, which utilizes an emerging “3D-illusion” trend in Web design.

"Renee" is at the forefront of film sites to implement horizontal parallax scrolling, which gives the site a “pseudo-3D” effect. This technique enables multiple backgrounds to move at different speeds, increasing the viewer’s sense of depth in the design and creating more engaging content.

On the new visually intriguing “Renee” site, fans can scroll through several scenes from the film, including one where Dennings crowd surfs across the screen.
