Jonah Hill may direct zombies, vampires, and aliens in The Kitchen Sink

03.02.2011

It's going to be a good upcoming stretch for rotund funny dude Jonah Hill. Next year we'll be seeing 21 JUMP STREET, in which he had a hand in writing and will also star. And then just later this year he'll be seen starring opposite Brad Pitt in MONEYBALL, the high-profile sports drama written by recent Oscar winner Aaron Sorkin and Steven Zaillian that will likely be aiming for some awards attention.

So f*ck it, why not add some directing to the list?

According to Deadline, Hill is in talks to make his directorial debut with THE KITCHEN SINK, a 2010 Blacklist script from writer Oren Uziel (the scribe behind the video short MORTAL KOMBAT: REBIRTH and the upcoming MORTAL KOMBAT web series). Here's a bit on what to expect from the project:

"It's more in the spirit of The Breakfast Club than anything, but you get an idea of the title in an early scene where two kids are running from zombies. Those zombies suddenly are attacked by vampires. Just when they are all facing off, there's a bright light overhead. You realize the aliens have landed and these groups have to band together, suppress the urge to kill each other, and it becomes thematically the enemy of my enemy is my friend. That makes it different than your usual zombie, vampire, or alien movie."

Well, that certainly sounds like everything but the kitchen sink, though nowhere near as exciting as Zack Snyder's own "kitchen sink" film SUCKER PUNCH. Perhaps it would help if zombies, vampires, and aliens weren't so completely played out...
Extra Tidbit: Jonah Hill's first ever movie role was in filmmaker David O. Russell's I <3 HUCKABEES back in 2004.

Is this a buddy comedy? Tracy Morgan as head vampire?

lol at everyone talking about how the 3 genres are played out. Um...THAT'S THE POINT. It seems like it's playing off how unnecessarily those 3 things are in EVERY FILM. I expect this to be super tongue in cheek ala Zombieland only with more of a 'jokes on you Hollywood' thing going on. Add some hopefully good writing and Jonah Hill, I'm fucking stoked.

This does sound cool, I'll admit. But I totally agree that all three genres are getting run into the ground.

Sounds cool. Jonah has enough talent to make this work.

I Heart Huckabees is a great movie and everytime I see it I always forget that Hill is in it.

interesting

The 2010 blacklist bit sounds good. I can't judge Jonah since this will be his debut... though I would prefer a more experienced director for such a ambitious project. I'm not really sold on the synopsis, I'm not sure I even understand it... who will have to band together? The kids with vampires, or aliens? Or do vampires, aliens and zombies will have to join forces to kill two kids? :P
