Jonah Hill is a busy guy. In addition to finding consistent work as actor since his film debut in 2004’s I Heart Huckabees, Hill has attached himself to a variety of projects as a writer, including the upcoming theatrical adaptation of the ’80s television show 21 Jump Street. Now, The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Hill is mulling over a deal that could see him make his directing debut on Kitchen Sink, a science fiction comedy set up in development at Sony.
Produced by former Columbia Pictures production chief Matt Tolmach, Kitchen Sink is written by Oren Uziel, the man who wrote the extremely well-recieved Mortal Kombat: Reborn viral video that floated around the internet last year before launching a soon-to-be-released web series. Kitchen Sink‘s script is about vampire and zombie teenagers who put aside their hatred of each other to defend the earth from an alien invasion.
While Kitchen Sink certainly sounds like an interesting film, it’ll be even more interesting to see how Hill tackles what sounds like a big budget, special effects-heavy film for his first project. Hill has not yet accepted the offer and its unknown if the actor would also appear in the movie in front of the camera.
