Whilst Jonah Hill may primarily be known as a comedic actor, however that’s not going to stop him from flexing his dramatic chops behind the camera. Mid90s has been written and directed by the star of 21 Jump Street as he pushes his career forward with his first directorial debut.
Showing the story of a young boy who is growing up in LA in the 90s, the film stars relative newcomer Sunny Suljic as well as Katherine Waterston and Lucas Hedges. The trailer shows what he goes through on a day to day basis as he wants to be treated as a grown up, rather than a child. Something I think we can all relate to, even though of you who haven’t quite grown up just yet (me).
Coming from the critically acclaimed independent company A24, the studio has had success with previous releases including Lady Bird, A Ghost Story, The Florida Project, The Lobster and American Honey. This is the first time Jonah has teamed up with the studio but not the first film he’s written. Previously his work includes TV series Allen Gregory, as well as film 21 and 22 Jump Street as well as Sausage Party. Looks like this is going to be very different to any of those. The film is set for release in October this year
Keep. It. Reel.
