Mid90s: Jonah Hill’s First Take As A Director
You'll want to check out this trailer for Jonah Hill’s Mid90s
We at The Sitch love Jonah Hill. He’s been in some of our favorite movies, including Superbad, The Wolf of Wall Street, 22 Jump Street, and even War Dogs. But now it’s time for this seasoned actor to take on the role of director for the first time in his new movie Mid90s (ok, so his IMDb says that he’s also directed Danny Brown's "Ain’t It Funny" and Sara Bareilles' "Gonna Get Over You" but those were both music videos from a while back and Mid90s is a feature film).
The new movie is in partnership with A24, the same production house that has produced Oscar-winning and Oscar-nominated hits like Moonlight and Lady Bird. Scott Rudin, Ken Kao, and Eli Bush are producing for A24 and the trailer looks nothing less than nostalgic.
Hill, the 34-year-old Oscar nominee who has acted for great directors like Quentin Tarantino, Martin Scorsese, and the Coen brothers to name a few, not only directed the film but also wrote it. The story is about the thirteen-year-old, Stevie (Sunny Suljic), and his troubled young life growing up in Los Angeles. After meeting a band of older skateboarding friends, he embarks on a few adventures in order to escape his not so ideal home life. The film also features Katherine Waterston as his mother, Lucas Hedges as his abusive older brother and aims to show the social impact of growing up in lower-income areas.
The film is set to open in theaters October 19.
