A group of Spokane natives started a game of tag 28 years ago and it's now set to become a movie starring Jeremy Renner, Jon Ham, Ed Helms, Jake Johnson, Isla Fisher, Rashida Jones and Hannibal Buress.
The group of friends including Brian Dennehy (not that Brian Dennehy) originally started the game on the campus of Gonzaga Prep, but since moving on to college, careers, families, and locations all throughout the country have kept the game going each year.
One player will be "IT" during a given month, but there are no geographic restrictions and the game remains live throughout the entire month. This has led to all sorts of situations with players being tagged at work, home, and even flights booked just to tag another player. Whomever is last tagged at the end of the month remains "IT" for the entire year.
In the movie Jeremy Renner stars as a friend that's never been "IT" and plans to retire that way. It's set to open July 15th. Check out the trailer below! Warning: NSFW
This is brilliant and I kind of want to start doing it around our offices!
