Jonah Hill’s directorial debut Mid90s is set to debut on the fall film festival circuit next month, but there’s one more surprise in store: Film Music Reporter reports that Oscar winners and Nine Inch Nails members Trent Reznor and Aticus Ross have composed the original score.
Hill wrote, produced, and directed the film, which follows a 13-year-old named Stevie over the course of a summer as he makes friends with a group of skaters. As the title suggests, the film takes place in the mid-1990s. This looks to be a very character-driven coming-of-age story a la Lady Bird, which shares both a producer (Scott Rudin) and a studio (A24) in common with Mid90s.
Mid90s is an upcoming American comedy-drama film written and directed by Jonah Hill, in his feature directorial debut. It stars Sunny Suljic, Lucas Hedges and Katherine Waterston.
It will have its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 9, 2018. The film is scheduled to be released on October 19, 2018, by A24.
Written and directed by Jonah Hill, Mid90s follows Stevie, a 13-year-old boy in 1990s-era LA, who spends his summer navigating between his troubled home life with his emotionally and physically abusive older brother, and a group of new friends that he meets at a Motor Avenue skate shop.
