  • Stop us if this sounds familiar: A soapy thriller about beautiful people caught in a web of

  • money, lies, and murder?

  • A cast filled with attractive up-and-comers, and peppered with a few Hollywood legends?

  • Camilla Mendes - aka Veronica Lodge herself - in a leading role?

  • But no, it's not the latest season of Riverdale.

  • Instead, it's Dangerous Lies, a twisty new film that hits on April 30.

  • Dangerous Lies is the sort of movie that you don't want to know too much about before watching

  • - for this kind of thing, outrageous plot twists are a big part of the fun.

  • But you don't have to go in completely blind.

  • You won't find any spoilers here, but you will find the lowdown on Dangerous Lies' premise,

  • its surprisingly stacked cast, and the people who brought the movie to life behind-the-scenes.

  • Here's everything you need to know.

  • Katie and Adam's luck is about to change, and not necessarily for the better.

  • The young, broke couple can't explain why Katie's elderly patient, Leonard, left her

  • his entire estate, but they'll happily move into his house anyway, in hopes of making

  • a fresh start.

  • "Come on, it's our first night in the new house."

  • That's when the mysteries begin to pile up.

  • What's with the trunk full of cash hidden inside the mansion?

  • Why is that shady real estate agent so interested in Katie and Adam?

  • Did Leonard really die of natural causes, or was there foul play involved?

  • And, of course, the big one: Why did Leonard make Katie - a woman he's only known for a

  • few months - his sole heir?

  • On the surface, Dangerous Lies treads similar ground as 2019's hit, Knives Out, although

  • they're not the same.

  • While Knives Out is a quirky, comedic whodunit, Dangerous Lies plays things much straighter,

  • although it does so with a heightened, pulpy flare.

  • "If you want to find new listings, check the obituaries."

  • Really, it's all there in the title.

  • Dangerous Lies drips with over-the-top melodrama.

  • Expect the same from the movie itself.

  • If you're a fan of Riverdale and you just can't get enough, Dangerous Lies should scratch

  • that itch.

  • Not only is Dangerous Lies a sordid little story full of murder and mayhem, but it also

  • stars Camilla Mendes, who's been playing the shrewd debutante Veronica on the CW's sexed-up

  • Archie comics adaptation for the past four seasons.

  • Despite Riverdale's unique style, tone, and cast, Mendes consistently proves she's an

  • excellent, standout actress.

  • She earned rave reviews for her performance in Coyote Lake, and even though her feature

  • film career is still getting started, she's appeared in a number of hits, including The

  • New Romantic and The Perfect Date.

  • Dangerous Lies should give Mendes a chance to show off her chops, and it'll be nice for

  • fans to see how well she fares when she's unshackled from Riverdale's surreal and bombastic

  • storytelling style.

  • Mendes' co-star in Dangerous Lies, Jessie T. Usher, isn't quite as well-known - not

  • yet, anyway - but he's the very definition of an up-and-comer.

  • The young star has already appeared in a few big-budget blockbusters: he played Will Smith's

  • son in Independence Day: Resurgence, and then played Shaft Jr. in 2019's soft reboot of

  • that franchise.

  • But you're most likely to recognize him from the raunchy superhero comedy The Boys, in

  • which he plays A-Train.

  • You know, the super-speedster who ran straight through Wee Hughie's girlfriend?

  • Yeah, that guy.

  • Dangerous Lies' supporting cast is nothing to sneeze at, either.

  • Jamie Chung, the former Real World star who's gone on to appear in projects like Zack Snyder's

  • Sucker Punch and Fox's X-Men spin-off Gifted, shows up in Dangerous Lies as Leonard's lawyer.

  • Cam Gigandet, who you probably recognize from The O.C. and Twilight, is the creepy real

  • estate agent stalking Katie and Adam.

  • Dawson's Creek, Rissoli and Isles, and NCIS veteran Sasha Alexander has a featured role,

  • too.

  • "Maybe they had a reason.

  • Maybe it's just not the one you think."

  • However, the biggest surprise on Dangerous Lies' cast list is actually old-school Hollywood

  • royalty in the form of Elliott Gould, who plays Leonard.

  • While modern audiences might know the actor best from Steven Soderbergh's Ocean's Eleven,

  • or Contagion, Gould was a mainstay of late '60s, '70s, and '80s cinema.

  • Gould played Trapper John in the film MASH, which inspired the hit sitcom, portrayed Raymond

  • Chandler's iconic private eye Phillip Marlowe in Robert Altman's experimental mystery flick

  • The Long Goodbye, and scored an Academy Award nomination for his role in Bob & Carol & Ted

  • & Alice.

  • He's been around, and while he may not be in the movie much, his veteran presence goes

  • a long way towards making Dangerous Lies absolutely worth watching.

  • Dangerous Lies' writer and director aren't quite as recognizable as the movie's stars,

  • but don't worry.

  • They both have plenty of experience with this kind of thing.

  • In fact, director Michael Scott - no, not that one - has been directing TV movies since

  • the early '90s.

  • If you're a frequent viewer of the Hallmark Channel - c'mon, it's okay to admit it - chances

  • are you've caught a few of them.

  • Scott has over 50 movies on his filmography, many of them with titles like Murder at 75

  • Birch, Fatal Lessons: The Good Teacher, and Along Came a Nanny.

  • Dangerous Lies is going to be right at home.

  • Writer David Golden hasn't been at this quite as long, although he has an impressive list

  • of credits that include Every Christmas Has a Story, Finding Father Christmas, Christmas

  • Festival of Ice, Home for Christmas Day - yeah, it's a lot of Christmas.

  • Turns out Golden's name is a regular credit on the Hallmark Channel's offerings of Holiday

  • films.

  • While a pulpy thriller seems like a far cry from fluffy holiday fare, Dangerous Lies actually

  • marks a return to Golden's roots.

  • Although his most recent output definitely skews towards family-friendly, Golden cut

  • his teeth on mysteries like Absence of the Good, in which Stephen Baldwin plays a homicide

  • detective tracking down a serial killer.

  • With any luck, Dangerous Lies will give Golden the opportunity to cut loose.

  • Anyone who spends that much time telling Christmas stories is bound to have some frustrations

  • to work out.

  • The only way this movie could be better?

  • If it turns out that Santa was behind it the whole time.

  • "Santa Claus?"

  • "Live and in person."
