Jonah Hill directing “Kitchen Sink” with zombies, vamps and aliens?
By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Jonah Hill has been floating the idea of directing a feature film for some time now. Now it appears a sci-fi/horror project could be the one that finally coaxes him into the director’s chair.
Hill is “mulling an offer” to take on “The Kitchen Sink,” which is set up at Sony, according to THR. Oren Uziel’s script finds teenager zombies and vampires joining forces to protect our planet from an alien invasion.
The premise sounds great, and Hill could have a lot of fun with it. Until he makes that decision, he has plenty of projects on his plate that can keep him busy. He’ll be promoting David Gordon Green’s comedy “The Sitter,” which has Hill playing a college student babysitting his neighbor’s children (hilarity ensues). He’s also filming “Moneyball” with Brad Pitt, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Robin Wright.
Finally, Hill will collaborate with Sony on the studio’s planned “21 Jump Street” reboot. Hill is starring in the remake, as well as executive producing it. “Jump Street” will be in theaters in 2012.
