You might read that headline and think, "Hey, wasn't Jonah Hill supposed to have directed something already"? Good memory! Yes he was; a few years ago he all set to direct genre mash-up Kitchen Sink (now Freaks of Nature) but those duties ultimately fell to Robbie Pickering. But now Hill is finally ready to step behind the camera on a project that sounds more interesting, anyway.
Hill write direct and write the screenplay for coming-of-age film, Mid 90s, which centers on a group of California teens dealing with life during the era. Hill won't have a role in the film but would anyone be shocked if he calls on a few pals to fill some roles? He's already got some powerhouses backing him in uber-producer Scott Rudin and indie label A24.
No word on when filming could begin, and with Hill's always busy schedule it could be anytime. [TheWrap]
