A24 Disaster Comedy ‘Y2K’ On the Way with Cast and Director
A24’s newest film is on the way, Y2K. It will be directed by SNL alum Kyle Mooney, with screenplay by Evan Winter.
Jaeden Martell (It), Rachel Zegler (West Side Story) and Julian Dennison (Deadpool 2) lead a stacked ensemble that includes Lachlan Watson (Chilling Adventures of Sabrina), Mason Gooding (Scream VI), 5x Billboard Music Award-winner The Kid Laroi, Tim Heidecker (Us), Eduardo Franco (Stranger Things), Miles Robbins (Blockers), Alicia Silverstone (The Killing of a Sacred Deer), Fred Hechinger (Fear Street Trilogy) and Daniel Zolghadri (Funny Pages).
“The film is set on New Year’s Eve 1999, two high school nobodies (Martell, Dennison) decide to crash the last big party before the new millennium. When the clock strikes midnight, the night gets more insane than they ever could have imagined.”
A24 will finance and handle its worldwide release, also producing alongside Winter, Matt Dines, Ali Goodwin, Jonah Hill of Strong Baby, and Christopher Storer under his American Light & Fixture banner. Wētā Workshop will oversee the film’s design and practical effects.
