Paramount+ will exclusively debut “Secret Headquarters,” an original superhero film starring Owen Wilson, in August in the U.S., Canada and in select international territories where the service is available. An exact release date will be announced at a later time. The streamer announced the news Wednesday morning.
“Secret Headquarters” follows a group of school children who discover the headquarters of a superhero and are forced to defend it from a crew of villains. Alongside Wilson, the film stars “The Adam Project” star Walker Scobell, Jesse Williams, Keith L. Williams, Momona Tamada, Abby James Witherspoon and Michael Peña.
“Secret Headquarters” comes from Paramount Pictures and Jerry Bruckheimer Films. The pair also teamed on “Top Gun: Maverick,” which was released to theaters this past weekend to the tune of a $160 million opening over the Memorial Day holiday.
Bruckheimer and Chad Oman serve as producers for the film, while Orlee-Rose Strauss and Scott Lumpkin serve as executive producers.
Moving “Secret Headquarters” to a Paramount+ release represents the latest development in Paramount’s emphasis on producing content targeted at families and children for its rising streaming service.
“We have seen tremendous success with our high-quality kids and family content and are excited to add this special superhero movie to our growing slate of Paramount+ original films,” Tanya Giles, chief programming officer for Paramount Streaming, said in a statement. “’Secret Headquarters’ is the perfect action-packed summer film for the whole family, making it a perfect fit for Paramount+ and our mountain of entertainment geared toward the whole household.”
