Jonah Hill to direct Keanu Reeves in Outcome

Jonah Hill, Keanu Reeves

Here’s a pairing you may not have seen coming. Deadline reports that Jonah Hill is about to step back into the director’s chair for a secret project by the name of Outcome which has Keanu Reeves attached to star. In addition to directing the project, Hill also co-wrote the script alongside Ezra Woods.

Plot details for Outcome are being kept under wraps at this point, but the project is expected to receive a lot of interest from studios and streamers once it hits the market. Although we know next to nothing about Outcome, I’ve got to admit that the pairing of Jonah Hill and Keanu Reeves is enough to pique my interest. This wouldn’t be Jonah Hill’s direct movie as he made his feature directorial debut with Mid90s, a coming-of-age comedy drama which starred Sunny Suljic as Stevie, a thirteen-year-old in 90s-era LA who spends his summer navigating between his troubled home life and a group of new friends that he meets at a Motor Avenue skate shop.

Jonah Hill also directed Stutz, a documentary which follows the life and career of Dr. Phil Stutz, Hill’s therapist. Making the film helped Hill understand how media appearances and promotion events have exacerbated his anxiety attacks and he decided to step away from promoting any movie he’s involved with.

Jonah Hill will next be seen starring in You People, a comedy he also co-wrote with director Kenya Barris. The film also stars Eddie Murphy, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Lauren London, Mike Epps, Sam Jay, Molly Gordon, Mike Epps, Nia Long, Deon Cole, Rhea Perlman, and David Duchovny. The film centers around a new couple and their families who find themselves examining modern love and family dynamics amidst clashing cultures, societal expectations, and generational differences. You People will be released on Netflix next year.
