Jonah Hill? New comedy? It's our lucky day! Earlier this month, Netflix announced its latest comedy for 2022 - Jonah Hills' You People. And we couldn't be more excited. The comedy is set to star the one and only Jonah Hill, accompanied by long-time comedian Eddie Murphy and Seinfeld queen Julia Louis-Dreyfus. We don't know much yet, but here's what we know so far.
Kenya Barris, best known for being the creator behind the sitcom black-ish, will be directing the upcoming Netflix original movie. Hill will be co-writing the script with Barris. According to IMDB, the film "Follows a new couple and their families, who find themselves examining modern love and family dynamics amidst clashing cultures, societal expectations, and generational differences." In the New 2022 Netflix Movie Preview Trailer, we get a short glimpse of the upcoming gem. Joining the hilarious trio will be La La Anthony, Lauren London, Nia Long, David Duchovny, and more!
It seems Hill has been a hot commodity this year in film - just in time for the 94th Academy Awards. The actor recently co-starred in Adam McKay’s hit Netflix movie, Don’t Look Up, alongside Meryl Streep, Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Lawrence, and other A-list celebs. The film follows the story of two astronomers who discover a gigantic comet is headed towards earth, leaving only six months until it hits and destroys everything. DiCaprio and Lawrence inform the President (Streep) and her Chief of Staff (Hill) about the impending disaster, but no one seems to care - or lookup. Since its release, the movie has dominated the news and award cycle. With an astoundingly valid message, the hit film is nominated for four Oscars, one of which being Best Motion Picture of the Year.
With that being said, unfortunately, we do not have an exact date for Hill's newest comedy debut, You People. But according to Netflix, the comedy will officially premiere this year. And if you haven't caught Hill and the rest of the star-studded gang in Netflix's Don't Look Up, make sure you catch it before the Oscars. Until next time, stay tuned.
