B.J. Novak’s directorial debut ‘Vengeance’ selected as Tribeca Festival’s centerpiece film

By Peter Sblendorio

NEW YORK — B.J. Novak’s directorial debut is coming to the Tribeca Festival with a vengeance.

The dark comedy-thriller “Vengeance” will be the New York City festival’s centerpiece film and is set to make its world premiere at the BMCC Tribeca Performing Arts Center on June 12, organizers announced Thursday.

The movie, which “The Office” alum Novak also stars in, centers on “a journalist who travels from New York City to West Texas to investigate the mysterious death of a young woman,” according to its summary.

“I am overwhelmed with happiness that ‘Vengeance’ will premiere as the centerpiece film of the Tribeca Festival, which has supported so many of my favorite artists over the years,” Novak said in a statement.

“Vengeance” is the latest headliner to be announced for next month’s Tribeca Festival. Organizers previously revealed “Halftime,” a documentary about Jennifer Lopez, will make its world premiere as the event’s opening night selection on June 8. The world premiere of the documentary “Loudmouth” about the Rev. Al Sharpton, meanwhile, will close out the festival on June 19.

The 2022 edition of Tribeca will also feature the premiere of Ray Romano’s directorial debut, “Somewhere in Queens,” on June 10; a storytellers conversation with Taylor Swift on June 11; and the premiere of the ESPN docuseries “The Captain” about Derek Jeter on June 12, with a talk featuring the former New York Yankee to follow.

Novak, 42, is best known for his work on the NBC sitcom “The Office,” which he wrote for and starred on as Ryan Howard.

Issa Rae, Ashton Kutcher and Dove Cameron also star in “Vengeance,” which opens in theaters on July 29.
